Visit our products for first aid room supplies. This list is a guideline from the Code of Practice but is not an exhaustive checklist of what is required to be in a First Aid Room. Refer to OHS Regulations and Code of Practice for first aid room requirements for certain types of workplaces.
A risk assessment will determine the type of first aid facilities needed. For example:
  • The contents of a first aid room should suit the hazards specific to the workplace
  • The location and size of the room should allow easy access and movement of injured people who may need to be supported or moved by stretcher or wheelchair
  • Additional items or equipment may also be required, depending on the outcomes of the first aid assessment

Contact us for a first aid room setup checklist or we can do the risk assessment for you.
