How many first aiders of what type are required?

Every company needs to undertake their own risk assessment to determine the amount of people and equipment required in the workplace.  This risk assessment should be renewed every 3 years in line with the qualification duration.  The following is the HSE’s guide on suggested numbers of first-aid personnel to be available at all times when staff are at work.
