In the UK alone, over 500,000 workplace accidents happen every year.  These can vary greatly in severity resulting in pain, suffering, loss of life and financial implications. It is therefore important for employers to ensure that the correct levels and type of first aid provision are made available. Employers need to undertake a first aid assessment to help determine the level of provision needed.  The extent of first aid provision will vary according to the level of risk, the size of the organisation and the activities that it undertakes.
