WHO should complete first aid training?

Section 21 of the Victorian OH&S Act 2004 states that, an employer must provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the employer’s management and control.

First Aid to Worker Ratios
Low-risk workplaces

  • In low-risk workplaces, compliance is achieved by providing:
  • one first aid officer for 10 to 50 employees
  • two first aid officers for 51 to 100 employees
  • an additional first aid officer for every additional 100 employees.

Higher-risk workplaces

  • In higher-risk workplaces, compliance is achieved by providing:
  • one first aid officer for up to 25 employees
  • two first aid officers for 26 to 50 employees
  • an additional first aid officer for every additional 50 employees.

Where an employee or group of employees does not have timely access to appropriate medical and ambulance services, (such as in remote, isolated or mobile workplaces) compliance is achieved by providing at least one first aid officer for every 10 employees.

(Worksafe First Aid in the workplace – Compliance code (Sept 2008)

WHY do you need first aid training?

The Law:
The law requires employers to provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, a safe working environment and adequate facilities for the welfare of their employees. Section 21(2)(d) requires that, in meeting their duty under section
21(1), an employer must provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the employer’s management and control.

This needs to include having appropriate first aid measures in place, including first aid kits and suitably trained first aid officers.

Australian Resuscitation Council:
All those trained in CPR should refresh their CPR skills at least annually. (ARC – Guideline 10.1 (March 2013).

Industry standards
Industry standards are universal with regard to first aid and CPR refresher training.

A first aid course remains current for 3 years, whereas CPR is required to be completed annually
