Abstract This article summarizes the legal responsibilities of employers in France with respect to the organization of first aid within the enterprise. Labour laws stipulate that employers are required to organize enterprise first aid services as a function of existing hazards. Based on advice from occupational physicians, employers need to define the practical details of first aid interventions in the event of accidents or emergencies, and in cases where specialized personnel are not available on site, of the training of staff in first aid methods. Topics addressed: training of personnel; first aid equipment; writing of first aid instructions.
