Welcome to the Safety First Aid Training’s First Aid Needs Assessment Calculator.


This calculator will help you to establish First Aid requirements in your workplace. The results can be used as guidance to help keep your workplace safe and combined with your Workplace Risk Assessment. In order to receive the most relevant guidance, please answer each question as accurately as possible.


Please complete a separate assessment for each site or area in your workplace. An example of a site is a warehouse, an office function or a building in a different location. If you have multiple sites or areas, you can complete this assessment as many times as you like. When the first site is complete, simply run the assessment again to gather new results for the next site.


The results generated are for guidance only. Please ensure you carry out a full First Aid Needs Assessment and Workplace Risk Assessment to fully understand your workplace requirements.
