First Aid with DDS (International) Limited

People can suffer injury or sudden illness and first aid arrangements are required to ensure they receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill. Failure to provide first aid could result in a person's death, therefore you should ensure that an employee who is injured or taken ill at work receives immediate attention.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) will prosecute in cases where there is a significant risk, a disregard for established standards or persistent poor compliance with the law.

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given to employees if they are injured or become ill at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces including those with five or fewer employees and to the self-employed.

What is adequate will depend on the circumstances in the workplace. This includes whether trained first aiders are needed, what should be included in a first aid box and if a first aid room is needed. Employers should carry out an assessment of first aid needs to determine this.

How can we help?

At DDS (International) Limited, we specialise in providing a comprehensive solution to all of your first aid requirements, including:

  • First aid training
  • Health and safety risk assessments
  • Health and safety management solutions
  • Health and safety audit
  • RIDDOR accident and incident reporting systems and support
  • Enforcement support
  • And a range of first aid products

We recognise that every organisation is different, has different needs and requirements, and most importantly needs a solution that is tailor made to help ensure compliance with the relevant legislation or regulations.

Bespoke and tailor made solutions do not have to carry additional cost or bureaucracy, in fact they often can be simpler and more straightfoward to implement.
