HSE guidance clearly states employers have a legal duty of care towards their employees. This includes arranging equipment to ensure their employees receive immediate attention if an injury occurs at work. If your risk assessment suggests your work place could cause head, neck and spinal injuries, it would be worth considering supplying a stretcher and head immobiliser for such events.
