Workplace WHS

What is the WHS Act and how does it affect me?

“A person conducting a business or undertaking has the primary duty under the WHS Act to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that workers and other persons are not exposed to health and safety risks arising from the business or undertaking. The duty includes a requirement to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that adequate facilities are provided for the welfare of workers at the workplace. Adequate facilities include first aid arrangements.

“The WHS regulations place specific obligations on a person conducting a business or undertaking in relation to first aid, including requirements to

  • The provision of first aid equipment
  • That each worker must have access to the equipment
  • Workers have access to facilities for the administration of first aid.
  • An adequate number of workers are trained to administer first aid or workers have access to an adequate number of people who have been trained to administer first aid

The Code of Practice for First Aid has been developed to provide practical guidance for persons who have duties to manage risks to health and safety under the WHS Act and Regulations applying in a jurisdiction to provide adequate first aid facilities in the workplace. It includes information on first aid kits, procedures, facilities and training for first aiders.

The First Aid Service provided by Sanokil ensures that your Business is always complaint with the regularly changing WHS Regulations, recommendations and legislation.

First aid requirements will vary from one workplace to the next. In order to assess how to best provide for first aid in a workplace Sanokil can provide an obligation free audit to asses your kit requirements.
