Workplace First Aid Compliance


Australian workplaces are required to have first aid treatment and facilities available to each worker and trained people available to administer first aid when required.

We recommend that a site assessment be completed to identify workplace hazards that could result in injury or illness. The assessment should help to determine the type and severity of potential injuries, the practical location of first aid kits or equipment and training requirements.

Accidental will work together with you to assess your workplace needs and ensure that your team is First Aid
ready.
