First aid – a matter of life or death

Published:  21 November, 2014

Arco.jpgEvery year in the UK, thousands of people die in situations where basic first aid could have saved their lives. A survey carried out in 2012 by St John’s Ambulance revealed that only 18 % of people know basic first aid, yet all businesses are required by law to provide the appropriate first-aid arrangements, including the provision of trained first aiders.

In order to help promote workplace safety and guide businesses towards providing the right kit and training, ARCO, a leading UK safety supplier, has published an Expert Guide to First Aid Kits and Training in the Workplace. Arco says its First Aid Expert Guide provides clear instruction on the current regulations and on the correct contents of first aid kits.
