As per Section 45 in the Factories Act, 1948, there is a to need to have 4 First-aid boxes containing the mandatory appliances to be kept and there has to be an incharge of the first-aid boxes or cupboards and trained persons in first-aid treatment. So as a matter of abundant caution, have one in charge and 2-3 trained workers with each such box so that at least a couple of them are available whenever any mishap occurs. There is no statutory limit laid down either in the Factories Act 1948 or the Gujarat Rules 1963. It would all depend on the nature of industry as to how much it is accident prone, the number can be decided.

Dear Vivek,
Rather than concentrating on the total number of the employees, I recommend you train the employees on first aid treatment per department. Depending on the number of employees working in the department, the number can vary.
The second factor to be looked into is the exposure to the risk. The shop-floor employees and other employees who are engaged in the production are exposed to the risks most and in that department more number of trained employees are required.

First Aid at workplace plays vital role in health and safety procedure of an employees and employers. It is very important that First Aiders are ready to act in case of any minor injury or any emergency case.
According to the law of Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 there should be at least one person trained in first aid in a company with 5-50 employees.
