The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 states "that employers should provide a suitable first-aid room where the assessment of first aid needs identifies this as necessary". It is usually necessary in larger premises or where there are higher hazards present. The first-aid room should be easily accessible and a designated person should be given responsibility for supervising it and ensuring supplies are maintained. If possible, this first-aid room should be resevered for the purposes of first aid. 

The room should:
  • Contain essential first aid supplies and equipment 
  • Be large enough for an examination couch
  • Have washable surfaces, adequate heating, ventilation and lighting
  • Ideally, have a sink with hot/cold running water
  • Be kept clean, tidy and accessible at all times when employees are at work
  • Be positioned as close as possible to a point of access for transport to hospital
  • Be clearly signposted and identifed 

Outside the first aid room there should be adequate signage. This should include; a sign advertising that this is the first aid room along with the names, locations and if necessary, contact details for first-aiders. This information should also be displayed in other appropriate places around the premises.
