4.4b First aid

Establishments should already have in place a risk assessment which determines their first aid provision on site. Off-site provision should simply be an extension of this. The determination of the appropriate requirements should take into account:
• The nature of the activity.
• The nature of the group.
• The likely injuries associated with the activity.
• The extent to which the group will be isolated from the support of the emergency services (both in terms of distance and response time).
