||The use and cost of first aid in the food and drink manufacturing industry
||Aug. 1995, Vol.45, No.4, p.199-204. 11 ref.
||A questionnaire survey of 36 food and drink manufacturing companies in the United Kingdom showed that almost all of the companies complied with current legislation by providing trained first aiders and adequate treatment equipment and facilities. The average cost was GBP 16.00 per worker per year. The majority of the treatment provided (93%) was of a minor nature. A case is made for first-aid training to be reduced in content, but undertaken more frequently, to ensure that first aiders can adequately manage an acute, life-threatening medical emergency.
