All businesses must ensure by law that they have sufficient number of employees who possess a First Aid qualification in order to fulfil their First Aid needs at all times.
Employers must ensure that their First Aid provision is "adequate and appropriate". It is the employer's responsibility to decide what the requirements of the organisation are by assessing any specific work hazards and ensuring that sufficient equipment, facilities and personnel are available to deal with the consequences of these hazards.
As part of each assessment, the HSE recommends organisations should look at things such as the nature of work engaged in and the subsequent hazards and risks, the size of the organisation, work patterns and accident histories amongst other things.
