FIRST AID POLICY AND PROCEDURES
THE PLACE FOR FIRST AID
First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries becoming major ones. Under health and safety legislation employers have to ensure that there are adequate and appropriate equipment and facilities for providing first aid in the workplace.
This guidance reflects consultation with the teacher unions, LEAs, health services and voluntary organisations. The guidance does not constitute an authoritative legal interpretation of the provisions of any enactments or regulations or the Common Law; that is exclusively a matter for the Courts.
FIRST-AID PROVISION AT ROSELYN HOUSE SCHOOL / THE RHISE CENTRE COMPRISES:
Suitably stocked first-aid containers situated around the school and RHISE Centre.
An appointed person to take charge of first-aid arrangements as nominated in the Health & Safety Policy which is Mrs Smith .
Information for employees on first-aid arrangements (Induction and INSET).
This provision has been supplemented by a regular risk assessment to determine if any additional provision is required.
Risk assessments are made as required by careful consideration of each incident and discussion.
First-aid provision available at all times while people are on school and RHISE premises, and also off the premises in school vehicles or personal vehicles if used for transporting students.
