The article presents information on a discussion document of first-aid at work published by the Health and Safety Executive. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is seeking opinions on the regulation of first-aid at work. It is hoped that there will be wide interest in this issue as every employer and self-employed persons have a duty to make provisions for first-aid in their workplace. These duties are contained in The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 and Approved Code of Practice and Guidance, L74 1997. The discussion document asks fundamental questions about first-aid at work. It also specifically seeks views on extending the application of the regulations to members of the public, the approval by HSE of first-aider training courses and the provision of first-aid equipment, medications and related medical issues and others. The discussion document can be found on the HSE Web site. It includes an easy to use questionnaire for return electronically to HSE.
