First aid saves lives

According to a report commissioned by the British Red Cross up to 59 per cent of deaths from injury may have been prevented if first aid was given before the emergency medical services arrived.

Simple first aid could help to reduce the number of people who die from injury before reaching hospital.

The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and people to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.

It is essential that organisations have trained first aiders present in the workplace in case of potential incidents and emergencies.
