First Aid Training Requirements

The adequacy of first aid provision at your location must be reviewed at least yearly. Needs may change if employee or student numbers change significantly for instance. The first aid officer is responsible for restocking first aid kits, and this should be included as part of planned and scheduled workplace inspections.
