The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 apply to all workplaces in Great Britain, including those with less than five employees, and to the self-employed. This Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance is aimed at all industries, although guidance on first aid in mines, diving and offshore is given in separate publications.
It sets out the aspects of first aid that employers need to address, offering practical advice on what they need to do, and aims to help employers understand and comply with the Regulations.
