Appointed Person 2 Hour Course

By: First Aid Select Training  12/08/2008

Appointed Person Course.

Where an employer's assesment of First Aid needs identifies that a First Aider is not necessary, the minimum requirement for an employer is to appoint a person to take charge of the First Aid arrangements. This includes looking after the equipment and facilities and calling the Emergency Services when required. Arrangements should be made at all times for an Appointed Person to be available to undertake these duties when people are at work. In the absence of the First Aider, employers must appoint a person for this purpose. It should be remembered that Appointed Persons are not First Aiders and should not attempt to give First Aid for which they have not been trained.
