First Aid Kits At Work

Are you in charge of checking and maintaining first aid kits at work?

Same money and time with some simple methods.

Its a frustrating but essential job that can be made easier by doing some simple things.

Label or tag the kit with something that will alert you to the fact that someone has opened the kit – this will let you know that you need to check it. You can even label it with the expiry dates – this way if the tag/label is still in place you know that you don’t need to check the kit.

Bandaids ( fabric strips )  are the most common item used in a first aid kit. Put a packet beside the kit and encourage staff to use these rather than opening the kit. Combine this with the label system and you will save money and time

COVID-19 UPDATE

The venues we use especially in the Sydney region are clubs, as such, they have the right to set their own restrictions around who can and cannot enter the facility. These restrictions are totally out of our control and not always in line with Health Guidelines. We recommend you contact the venue you are booked to attend the day before the course and check that you are not restricted based on your individual situation. We can transfer your registration free of charge (if due to COVID venue restriction)  only if we are notified the day before a course. Normal cancellation policies will apply if we are not contacted prior to the event.

We are taking all required steps to ensure everyone’s safety including removing tables, no breaths required when doing CPR, ample cleansing wipes, refusal of attendance for any participants presenting with flu or cold symptoms, or those that should be self-isolating. 

Our standing request for unwell students: If you are unwell with any type of “cold or flu” we will NOT ALLOW YOU TO ENTER THE COURSE.

Face masks are not mandatory but we recognize you may choose to wear a mask when visiting our venues
