First aid warning for over summer.

BUSINESSES on Teesside are being urged to make sure they have enough first aiders working over the summer.

St John Ambulance says that businesses can unwittingly be left without a trained first aider in place to deal with medical emergencies.

This is often due to members of staff taking holidays during the summer.

By law, all workplaces must comply with Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981.

This means that employers must have the adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and staff in place to enable first aid to be given at work.

St John Ambulance is offering to help businesses assess whether or not they are meeting the requirements. To complete its survey, log on to www.sja.org.uk/survey.
