Abstract A review of the French regulations concerning the organisation of first aid in enterprises: those aspects for which management is responsible, those for which the enterprise in general is responsible and those for which outside agencies are responsible. The roles of the first witnesses to an accident, of first-aid specialists, of more specialised personnel (firemen, medical and paramedical personnel) and of outsiders are described and summarised in a separable flow chart. It is important to maintain interaction among all levels of personnel concerned with first aid, and to provide training and refresher courses for those most likely to be first at the scene of an accident.
