- Clearly indicates the location of first aid points
- Meets all current UK and EU regulations
- Can be used in a variety of locations
Under UK and EU regulations organisations are required to indicate the location of first aid points through the use of clear first aid point posters or sign. Failure to meet these requirements could mean costly legal action or issues with insurance. This first aid point poster meets guidelines and is clear and easy to understand. The text "first aid" is printed in an easy to read font and the universally recognised first aid cross symbol is boldly displayed. The first aid point sign is one in a series of green recognised health and safety location signs, which include a range of fire exit signs and more specific first aid signs such as wheelchair evacuation location signs and defibrillator location signs
This emergency first aid point sign is available in a variety of sizes to suit your location and can be purchased in clear acrylic, polypropylene rigid plastic, self-adhesive rigid plastic and self-adhesive vinyl, which enables you to select the right poster for each location, including all indoor, outdoor and food preparation areas. The acrylic first aid point poster has a green gloss finish and is suitable for any indoor location. The rigid polypropylene and rigid acrylic first aid point signs have a satin finish and can be used both indoors and outdoors and the self-adhesive vinyl sign offers a high gloss finish that can be used outside if necessary. Screw holes can easily be drilled in the polypropylene sign and all self-adhesive fixings are permanent.
There should be a first aid kit located near to each first aid point sign. These should comply with industry standards and be easily accessible. Employees should all be informed of the names of trained first aiders, one way to ensure this is to use a 'your first aiders are' sign.
It is clear that employers have a moral as well as a legal duty to mitigate risk through informing employees of first aid arrangements. This versatile sign will do this clearly and in a range of locations.
