First aid at work introduction


In the event of injury or sudden illness, first aid can make all the difference to a person's recovery, and could even save their life. 

It is important that anyone who is injured or taken ill at the University receives immediate attention from a trained first aider. 

Key points for this protocol are

  • Inductions include how to get first aid assistance 
  • First aid notices are displayed
  • People are competent to carry out first aid roles
  • University-owned vehicles carry a first aid kit
  • All accidents, incidents, near misses and cases of work-related ill health are reported
  • Locations of University defibrillators on campus are published.
