Employers do not have to ensure that each and every employee has
first-aid training. However, under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations
1981 (SI 1981/917), they must inform employees of the first-aid arrangements,
including the location of equipment, facilities and personnel. This information
must be part of any induction training given to new employees.
