Is my business considered high-risk? What basic first aid requirements should my workplace first aid kit meet?
Businesses in Australia are required to provide enough fully stocked workplace first aid kits for the safety of all workers, customers, and visitors.
According to the OHS Workplace Compliance Code, high-risk workplaces and industrial sites must be prepared at all times to meet the following first aid requirements for workplace safety:
Must provide one high-level first aid kit for up to 25 personnel, including any additional specialised first aid modules.
Must provide two kits for up to 50 employees, including external modules.
For every additional 50 employees, one extra first aid kit should be provided. This extends to specialised modules for burns, eye injuries, traumatic injuries and so on.
High-risk workplaces include all workshops, agriculture and forestry operations, commercial kitchens, manufacturing facilities, construction sites, law enforcement agencies, and mine sites, as well as any workplace where employees are at risk of exposure to hazardous substances.
If your company operates specialised machinery like industrial farm equipment, forklifts, and power tools, or carries a possibility of mechanical accidents resulting in serious injuries, then you are considered medium to high risk, and are required to purchase a first aid kit at that level.
Isolated workplaces located far from medical assistance and ambulance services are also considered high-risk and must provide the appropriate first aid kits and supplies for their workers.
