WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY (WHS)
Work health and safety, or WHS, refers to the Work Health and Safety act of 2011, and the Health and Safety Regulation of 2017. Both of these items are administered by Safe work NSW and are frequently updated. It is the responsibility of all businesses and persons conducting business to comply with WH&S guidelines or they may be liable for prosecution or face penalties.
There are specific laws that outline the management of first aid in a workplace. For instance, you must provide first aid equipment and have trained first aid personnel. They also have standards for first aid that are dependent on the type of work you do, the area size, location and number of workers in a business.
That’s why we take the hassle out of your hands. We make sure your first aid kits in your workplace are up to date with current legislation and recommendations. As a result, you can focus on your core business activities.
The full code of practice in relation to first aid can be found here .
