Every workplace in Australia is covered by a legislated requirement to have appropriate first aid available and accessible for all employees. In many situations trained first aiders must also be available to cover all shifts. The onus of this responsibility falls upon the employer to ensure adequate first aid is available for potential emergencies that may arise.
What constitutes a workplace?
Most would readily identify an office, warehouse, manufacturing facility or a construction site as workplaces but don’t forget work vehicles such as trucks, delivery vehicles and company cars also constitute a workplace and require appropriate first aid to be on board.
First aid site assessment
No two workplaces are the same, and therefore it is important to assess your workplace hazards to determine what your specific first aid needs are. See the table below for an example.
How many first aid kits do you need?
Your first aid kits should be easily accessible by employees and preferably available within minutes of your employees work stations. In a very large workplace, or one spanning multiple floors, first aid may need to be available in more than one area. Ideally, first aid should be located close to all work areas where there is a likely risk of an injury occurring. For example production areas, kitchen, dispatch, office, vehicles etc. The addition of portable first aid kits will add flexibility and emergency readiness to your business environment.
