Selecting the right cover for your event

Choosing the type of cover your event will be depend upon the risk assessment you have completed and the risks you have identified. Some of the considerations you will need to make include:

  • Previous event data. For example, whether you've run the event before.
  • The type of event. For example, whether it’s a fete, dance show or football game.
  • Whether it is indoors or outdoors, and the type of venue you are hosting in.
  • Seated or standing audience.
  • The level of First Aider needed, First Aid at Work or above?
  • Audience attending, where its families, predominantly young people or an elderly audience.
  • Size of audience (a rough estimation of what you would need might be 2 first aiders per 800 people).
  • The kind of activity being carried out.
  • Time of year (this is particularly relevant to outdoor events).

To complete your risk assessment - we recommend you visit the Health and Safety Executive website and the Purple Guide.

We are a community organisation – do we have to have a First Aider at our event?


If your risk assessment identifies that you there is a need for someone to have the sole responsibility of being available to deliver First Aid then you will need to have a First Aider. You should also check with your event insurance provider to see what requirements they have for First Aid. Please remember if you are appointing your own First Aider from your organisation they may need 'Personal indemnity Insurance' also known as Mal Practice. You will need to check with your event insurer if this is a requirement. 


Do we have to pay for First Aid event cover?


Unfortunately we are not charity status and provide First Aiders commercially, so we will charge a fee including VAT.


Do I have any other alternatives?


If you budget does not provide for qualified medics or First Aiders from our organisation to attend your event, then you could train a member of your own team or volunteers. They will need to hold a First Aid at Work qualification or above (FREC3), insurance and First Aid equipment. More information on our training for responders can be found on our website.
