Do we need first aid medical cover if we are organising an event - even if it is only a small event?
Yes, you have a responsibility to competitor’s members of staff and the attending public to provide suitable first aid medical cover. It also makes no difference if your event is not for profit or commercial.
We have a first aider at work; do we really need your company?
The organiser of the event always has legal duty of care to those taking part and the public and furthermore the HSE states that just because a person has First Aid certification this does not qualify them as a First Aider, the following is taken from The Event Safety Guide (aka the Purple Guide) ‘Plan the provision of medical, ambulance and first-aid services along with the statutory services and appoint a competent organisation to provide medical management’ and ‘First aiders, ambulance and medical workers should: have relevant experience or knowledge of requirements for first aid at major public duties’ so we would feel the answer to the above is YES.
Are you reliable as we've been let down in the past?
We have built a reputation for 100% event attendance over the past five years and have never, ever let a customer down. All we ask is that you confirm your booking with us as soon as possible so we can dedicate our resources to your event. We are also sometimes able to cover events at late notice if someone does let you down.
