The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require employers to provide adequate numbers of first aiders, facilities and equipment to enable first aid to be given to employees who are injured or who fall ill at work.  These Regulations apply to schools in the same way as all other workplaces.  Their requirements deal, however, only with employees and do not specifically cover non-employees such as, in schools, pupils and other visitors to the premises.  Nevertheless, under the provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, employers have a duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of non-employees.  Moreover, HSE guidance states that HSE strongly recommends that non-employees are included in an assessment of first-aid needs and that provision is made for them.
