Our guide to your obligations in providing First Aid in your workplace.
Providing first aid in the workplace is an essential aspect of ensuring the safety of employees
while at work; the extent to which an organisation must provide first aid training, equipment and
facilities is a matter for each organisation to assess on its own circumstances.
An employer is required to take all reasonable and practicable steps to ensure the health and
safety of its employees, contractors, and customers, as well as anyone else on their premises.
WorkSafe’s “First aid at work” outlines specific recommendations about first aid, and should be
considered a first point of call when considering what all reasonable and practicable steps
means for your business.
