The number of first aiders required…

depends on the circumstances in the workplace, for example identified levels of risk and number of employees.  In addition, where employees work on different shifts, and in different buildings or across different sites, additional first aiders will be required.  There should also be sufficient first aiders to allow for forseeable absences, such as holidays, off-site meetings etc.  This information should be determined during the course of your risk assessment, and suitable plans should then be put into place to ensure that risks are minimised, and suitable first aid provision is available to care for casualties.
