ONSITE FIRST AID KIT RESTOCKING
We offer a no fee service where we come to you onsite and check your first aid kit supplies to ensure you have all that you need according to the Worksafe guidelines. We only charge for what we supply, and are happy to go to each of your sites.
We can remove all damaged, soiled or expired stock from site, and replace with new stock and ensure you have all you need in case of an emergency or slight misshap. This can be a huge relief for nominated Health and Safety Officers within the workplace, as we are well aware of the requirements, we deal with them often and can complete this duty quickly and efficiently.
Our visits can be as little or as often as your company wishes, with the most common visit times being either 6 or 12 monthly intervals depending on the industry and number of staff.

First aid kits
You must provide at least one first aid kit for each workplace and ensure workers know where it is.
Kits should contain basic equipment for attending to injuries, such as:
- cuts, scratches, punctures, grazes and splinters
- soft tissue sprains and strains
- minor burns
- broken bones
- eye injuries, and
What you put in the kit should be based on the particular risks of the work carried out at your workplace. For example, there is likely to be a higher risk of eye injuries and a need for eye pads if your workers:
- handle chemical liquids or powders in open containers
- carry out spraying, hosing or abrasive blasting
- are at risk of particles flying into their eyes
- are at risk of being splashed or sprayed with infectious materials, or
- carry out welding, cutting or machining operations.
If you have workers in remote or isolated locations, you must provide them with a basic first aid kit as well as extra first aid equipment if required.
