First Aid Legislation & Compliances For Workplaces
First Aid Level 1 is a compliance requirement in the workplace as legislated in the Occupational Health & Safety Act which states that for:
- more than five employees are employed at a workplace, the employer must provide a suitable first aid box which is accessible in the workplace for the treatment of the injured.
- more than 10 employees are employed at a workplace, the employer must ensure that for every group of up to 50 employees at that particular workplace there is at least one person readily available during normal working hours who is in possession of a valid first aid certificate issued by an accredited training provider.
Training Methodology and Philosophy
A foundation of mentorship, raising awareness, respect and vigilance for health, safety, security and protection of spaces and places where people live, work, meet and gather.
Besides first responders in the workplace, the course is also highly recommended as part of a H&S career-choice and entrepreneurship model for unemployed youth, women, community volunteer-NGO workers and anyone interested in health, safety, and saving lives.
It is highly recommended that employers ensure that all staff who work off - site are trained in first-responder eg. First Aid & Fire-Fighting Level 1 as a minimum, in case of an injury 'on duty' in the absence of ‘traditional, on-site first responders’ when medical emergencies arise out of office. This recommendation is supported by the ILO's 'An employers’ guide on working from home in response to the outbreak of COVID-19' (for quick reference to health and safety for remote workers, refer to page 19,20 and 21 ).
