First Aid Compliance

Being first aid ready is more than just having a first aid kit in the kitchen. It is about making sure that your organisation, sports club, school or daycare has a number of systems in place to ensure a safe place of work and activity and to mitigate risk.

This means having:

  • An appropriate number of staff or members trained in first aid for the size and risk level of your organisation or group.
  • Adequate first aid equipment, supplies and facilities and ensuring that people know how to correctly use this equipment.
  • The right processes in place to deal with an emergency.

The First Aid Facilities and Services Code of Practice (2002) outlines the practical requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (1984) in providing adequate first aid services and facilities to mitigate the consequences of any identified risk.

Identifying a workplace’s first aid requirements is a consultative process, as requirements are likely to vary across different workplaces.  

St John Safe Assessments

A St John Safe Assessment assists different workplaces in determining their first aid training, equipment, facility and procedural requirements. Our team will work closely with you to identify your needs and create a bespoke first aid training and services package to help your workplace be ready to deal with a first aid emergency.


We will arrange a time with you to conduct an on-site assessment of your workplace, current facilities and setup.


Our team will compile detailed recommendations about the required setups that your workplace may need to take to be compliant and ready to respond in an emergency.


Our consultants will work with you to implement the recommended changes. Upon implementing these changes, your workplace may then be considered St John Safe and you will be given a certificate to recognise your endorsement by St John.
