As well as providing first aid, food safety and health and safety training, First Response First Aid Ltd also supply businesses and individuals throughout the UK with first aid supplies for the workplace, travel and home.
Guidance from the HSE states the minimum level of first-aid equipment you may need is a suitably stocked first-aid box. (First-aid kit.) You should provide at least one first-aid kit for each workplace, although more than one might be required on larger sites. Each kit should be stocked with a sufficient quantity of first-aid materials suitable for the particular circumstances of your workplace.
First-aid kits should be made easily accessible. The contents of the first-aid kit should be checked frequently and restocked soon after any use.
Your needs assessment may indicate that additional materials and equipment are required eg foil blankets, cleansing wipes, cutting shears. These may be kept in the first-aid kit if there is room, or stored separately.
HSE has published further guidance on first aid equipment which gives advice on the minimum contents of a first-aid kit.

I just wanted to pass on how much all the staff who attended enjoyed the excellent Defib training yesterday with Rod. We all found it interesting, informative and extremely well taught. Thanks to Rod, we all feel very confident that we would be able to deal with an emergency situation that required either CPR or use of a Defib. Many thanks

Statistics, including trends in smoke alarm ownership, firefighter safety and fire prevention and protection activities by fire and rescue services will be released by the Home Office on Thursday 18th October. What sort of fire prevention measures should all businesses know about?
According to Health and Safety Executive Health and Safety at Work Summary statistics for Great Britain (2017) over 600,000 injuries occurred in the workplace between 2016 and 2017. Also, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that the current cost of injuries and ill health to businesses is £14.9 billion. All organisations need to comply with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. These regulations apply to all workplaces, regardless of size or number of employees. All employers should assess their first aid needs based on the hazards and risks that exist.
We will be providing a number of workplace first aid training courses, from the 1-day Emergency First Aid at Work course to the 3-day First Aid at Work course and the 2-day Refresher course in Walsall.
