Welcome to the Seton First Aid Resource Centre
Under the First Aid Code of Practice, all workers must be able to access a first aid kit. This requires at least one first aid kit to be provided in your workplace, including heavy machinery and work vehicles.
First Aid Kits should be:
- Kept in a prominent, accessible location and able to be retrieved promptly
- Located close to areas where there is a higher risk of injury or illness
- Located on every second floor, if a multi-storey building
- Checked and/or restocked after each use or at least once every 12 months
