Australian industrial workplaces present multiple risks and hazards.
Workers often operate heavy-duty machinery, handle hazardous materials and need to take precautions against serious mishaps. Dark stairwells, heavy lifting and busy loading bays are hazards staff faces every day.
A Brenniston National Standard Industrial Medium Risk First Aid Kit is vital to safe practice in Australian industrial workplaces. With a wide variety of first aid treatments readily available, risks are reduced and compliance assured.
Workplace burns, bleeding, eye injuries and post-accident shock are all provided for in a Brenniston National Standard Industrial Medium Risk First Aid Kit.
This heavy-duty kit was designed and developed in accordance with the Australian First Aid in the Workplace National Code of Practice.
The contents of this Brenniston National Standard Industrial Medium Risk First Aid Kit are regulated and safeguarded by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration, just like every other Brenniston National Standard Workplace First Aid Kit.
Are first aid kits legally required in workplaces?
Every Australian workplace is required by law to have a fully compliant first aid kit that is appropriate for the potential dangers, risks and hazards at that workplace.
In an industrial workplace, more than one kit is usually necessary because of the workplace size and scope of risks.
Factories, warehouses and workshops are just a few examples of industrial workplaces with a medium level of risk. Don’t forget that a workplace includes a vehicle used for work – from a car or motorbike to a truck, bus or delivery van.
Workplace safety covers the control of threats to the health and safety of everyone in a company or organisation, not just employees. The health and safety of customers, visitors, and contractors are all taken into consideration, as well as employees.
What should be in an industrial first aid kit?
Gloves, bandages, adhesive tape, antiseptic, gauze pads, and instant ice packs are some of the most common first aid items that should be in every workplace first aid kit. Additionally, an industrial medium-risk first aid kit should include highly absorbent wound dressings and pads, burn hydrogel, bandages, eye pads and a thermal accident blanket.
It’s important to seek out a well-designed, quality industrial aid kit that ensures workplace compliance.
If a government safety inspector audits your workplace and finds your first aid kits aren’t stocked with the right first aid supplies within the correct expiry dates, you might find yourself in serious trouble.
