The employer has a duty of care for the employees in his company. In the specific case of first aid, the Occupational Health and Safety Act regulates in § 10 that the following precautions must be taken according to the number of employees and according to the activities involved:
first aid, fire-fighting and evacuation measures
the presence of other persons (e.g. visitors) must be taken into account
Establishment of all necessary connections to off-site emergency services
designation of first aiders and competent persons for fire fighting and evacuation
Procurement of equipment in proportion to the number of employees.
The last point in particular is of considerable importance, as there are large numbers of products that can or must be called in to perform life-saving measures.
Obligations of the employees
There are also obligations on the part of employees when it comes to first aid in the workplace. As in private life, you are liable to prosecution if you do not provide first aid to injured persons. Only a risk to one's own health exempts one from this obligation. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, however, employees must also ensure safety and health protection within the scope of their possibilities (§ 15 and § 16). This starts with using "machines, equipment, tools, working materials, means of transport and other work equipment as well as protective devices and the personal protective equipment made available to them" in accordance with their purpose and minimising hazards for themselves and others.
