Has your risk assessment looked at holiday first aid
With the holiday season just around the corner
there’s an increased risk of absent first aiders and workplaces
being left without appropriate first aid cover.
Businesses have a responsibility to safeguard
their workers and visitors all year round, yet 79% of employees
have found themselves at work with no first aid cover

first aid requirements calculator and receive personalised
recommendations that will help you check your organisation is
covered for holiday absence.
The level of first aid cover required is
determined by a risk assessment and a first aid needs review. When
carrying out a risk assessment and first aid needs review we always
recommend that businesses consider training additional first aiders
in case of holiday or sickness absence.
