First aid kits, whilst not a legal requirement, are a significant part of the first aid provision supplied by any employer. Whether the member of staff is working in an office or is a remote, or lone, worker a first aid kit should be supplied or made available.
Employers have a legal duty to arrange for the immediate care of their staff if they become ill or suffer an injury at work. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 govern the provision of first aid by a business to their staff. These regulations apply to all workplaces, including those with fewer than five employees. Whilst the legislation doesn't state what has to be supplied, all employers should make an assessment of their first aid needs based on the hazards and risks involved in their work. First aid can, and does, save lives and your level of provision should be “adequate and appropriate” to your circumstances.
