4 Tips to Servicing & Restocking your First Aid Kit
Safe Work Australia establishes that all employees should be able to access a First Aid Kit in their workplace.
In the interest of helping you maintain a safe work environment, we’ve put together a First Aid Kits Checklist for Servicing and Restocking.
This list will cover all the basics and walk you through the things you need to think of.
Firstly, assess the level of risk in your workplace and confirm the kits you have match the current needs; consider the following:
Also, each work vehicle is considered an extension of the workplace.
With this review, are the number and type of your first aid kits still suitable?
Secondly, check the outer First Aid Box, Bag or Cabinet to make sure it is clean, hygienic, and structurally sound.
Thirdly, check the contents. Your First Aid Kit/s should contain a list or manifest. Use this to make sure the products are present, intact and in date.
TIP: if you can’t find a list, visit www.firstaidkitsaustralia.com.au and find a matching kit and use this list.
Fourth and final, your First Aid Kit has some important utensils such as Scissors, Forceps, Tweezers, etc. Make sure these usable, and if so, cleaned and disinfected.
And one more thing to check is that you have the correct number of trained First Aiders for the type and number of people you have at your workplace.
