Health and safety legislation requires that all employers provide adequate first-aid equipment, personnel and facilities to enable first aid to be given when the need arises. The types of potential injury and the degree of risk depend on the nature of the business. Not all workplace incidents requiring first aid are the result of injuries; some arise when employees become ill while in the workplace.
