If you decide you don’t need a first-aider in your workplace, you should appoint someone to take charge of first-aid arrangements. The role of this appointed person includes looking after first-aid equipment and facilities and calling the emergency services when required. They can also provide emergency cover where a first-aider is absent due to unforeseen circumstances (annual leave does not count). Appointed persons do not need first-aid training, though emergency first-aid courses are available.

An appointed person is someone appointed to:
• take charge when someone falls ill or is injured at work, including calling an ambulance if needed;
• look after the first aid box and other first aid equipment, including restocking the box; and
• keep records of treatment given.
