This section looks at how the decision to have a first aid appointed person was made. It explains their role and duties. It looks at the accident record book, confidentiality, making sure all staff know how first aid is handled and it looks at what should be in the first aid kit.
This explains exactly what must be done in a first aid emergency situation. It tells the first aid appointed person what to look out for, so that they can tell the emergency services what they need to know and it explains how to call the emergency services. It encourages a calm, confident, assurance in the first aid appointed person – the last thing a casualty needs is to see someone panic and look like they don’t know what to do!
