First-aid intervention registers - Council

Summary of Case 2017-0969:

The Council established a network of first-aiders on the basis of the Staff Regulations and the rules in the area of well-being at work. Under Belgian law in that field, the employer keeps a register in which the employee who carries out a first-aid intervention must indicate particular information concerning his intervention. The Council decided to implement a staff first-aid intervention register (first-aider record book) and a register of first-aid intervention for the medical service for instances where the medical service intervenes (on site and/or after transport of the casualty to its premises). The data subjects must be duly informed about the protection of personal data. In the light of the sensitive nature of those data and the urgent nature of the work of the first-aider, it is also essential that appropriate measures be implemented in order to guarantee the security of the personal data contained in the first-aider record book.
