Legal Requirements

It is a Work Cover requirement in New South Wales that a workplace first aider must renew their first aid certificate at least every three years to ensure that first aid skills and knowledge are up to date.

Workplace first aider - Queensland, it is recommended that access to first aid personnel is available wherever there are more than 25 persons at a workplace, regardless of whether or not those persons are employees (e.g. schools, Tafe and Universities. Childcare and Family Day Care).

Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 sets out specific first aid requirements for certain types of workplaces.

Courses can be completed on our public days or groups can book a course specific to their dates and times.

Examples:

Every workplace has a legal responsibility for ensuring adequate first aid provisions.

Personal Trainers - Fitness Australia require a current First Aid and CPR certificate as a condition of registration.

Agency Nurses require in Queensland to have current CPR & First Aid renewed as per requirement above.
