Perfect. Here's how LHS elXtr can help you

You must have first aid arrangements in your workplace and you’re responsible for making sure that your employees receive immediate attention if they’re taken ill or are injured at work. Accidents and illness can happen at any time and first aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones. Your arrangements will depend on the particular circumstances in your workplace and you need to assess what your first aid needs are. As a minimum, you must have a suitably stocked first aid box, an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements and information for all employees giving details of first aid arrangements. Workplaces where there are more significant health and safety risks are more likely to need a trained first aider. You’ll find useful information and documentation here to guide you through your first aid obligations.
