First Aid Needs Assessment

Guidelines for renewable energy projects

These health and safety guidelines provide basic information on how duty holders can assess the provision of adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure employees receive proper attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. Its sets out the key issues to take into account when conducting a first aid needs assessment. It does not prescribe specific equipment or facilities. In addition it does not specify any particular additional or advanced first aid training requirements where this may be relevant (although further information on training based on HSE guidelines is set out in Appendix I). Both these matters are for duty holders to determine via the risk assessment process. However the guidance does set out an overview of how these decisions might be taken into account.
