If you are an employer, main contractor, or self-employed, you are required to provide a safe workplace for all workers, including yourself. This code provides practical guidance for businesses to meet first aid obligations. This code includes requirements concerning:
- the provision of first aid facilities and services
- reporting and recording of occupational injuries
- training of employees to work without exposure to hazards.
The guidance from this code should be considered alongside the laws and regulations on occupational health and safety. Compliance with this code is not mandatory but will help you meet your legal obligations to provide a safe workplace.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
