Red Cross targets employers online

The British Red Cross has launched an online brochure to promote its health and safety training courses in a bid to reduce environmental waste.

The service, called iBrochure, also offers advice on first aid legislation in the workplace. Regulations say that businesses of all sizes, including the self-employed, must provide proper first aid if an employee becomes ill or injured at work. However, there is no rule for how many first aid-trained staff a business should have. The Red Cross says this causes confusion.

The Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Act, introduced last July, makes it possible to prosecute employers where bad health and safety management has had fatal consequences. The Red Cross says employers are concerned about staying up to date with the changes.

The homepage of the iBrochure is updated regularly.
