First Aid at work

First aid at work – Thousand of people each year are injured at work, this can be anything from a cut or fall to something more life threatening. For any low risk environment at a minimum there should be a first aid box and a designated person to co-ordinate first aid arrangements. For more high risk environments there should be designated first aiders. Under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 (as amended 1997) employers have a legal obligation to assess and introduce first aid provisions and any such provision should be easy to locate.

At Proshield Safety Signs we manufacture and stock a wide range of First Aid Signs for First aid at work, these include location signs for things such as the First Aid room, emergency shower and Emergency defibrillator. As well as signs where you as an employee can write the names of your first aiders and their contact details.
