The Management in Construction (Jersey) Regulations 2016, was introduced to ensure safe working practices on local construction sites of all sizes.
The Health and Safety at work (Jersey) Law 1989, explains that it is the responsibility of all members of the workplace to ensure the Health and Safety of others. This responsibility, not that solely of the employer.
There is no specific First Aid Law or Regulation in Jersey, however, as good practice, First Response Jersey follow the guidance of the UK HSE Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981, for all of its training, certification, updates and advice.
What does the regulation state?
This depends on the size of the site, the amount of personel employed including sub-contractors and the nature of hazards.
First Response Jersey can help you with this free of charge, so please contact us.
This will be determined by the size of the site, the amout of personel and the risks involved
Again this depends on the site, the hazards and the number of personnel. It is not always necessary to have staff trained in FAW as the shorter EFAW course is sufficient.

No. You must ensure that there is First Aid provision at all times on site when any related work is being carried out. (Remember to allow for sickness and holidays of your trained First Aiders).
