HLTAID008 Manage first aid services and Resources in your workplace.
First Aid Brisbane Manage First Aid Services and Resources course (HLTAID008) should be undertaken by all persons or employees who are responsible for the management of first aid in the workplace. Your course will assist those of you who are responsible for the management of first aid in the workplace.
As a result we ensure your course is structured to teach you the participants how to establish, maintain and facilitate the provision of appropriate first aid. Therefore course will also assist you to understand the requirement of first aid resources in the workplace.
From 1 July 2018 persons conducting a business or undertaking are required to comply with an approved code of practice under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011. Alternatively duty holders can follow another method. Such as a technical or an industry standard, to manage hazards and risks. As long as it provides an equivalent or higher standard of work health and safety to the standard required in the code.
A code of practice provides practical guidance for people who have work health and safety duties. These codes give guidance on:
- how to achieve the standards required under the Act
- effective ways to identify and manage risks.
A code of practice applies to anyone who has a duty of care in the circumstances described in the code. Following an approved code of practice assists you to achieve compliance with the health and safety duties in the Act.
Above all regulations, codes of practice deal with particular issues and do not cover all hazards or risks which may arise. As a result health and safety duties require duty holders to consider all risks associated with work, not only those for which regulations and codes of practice exist.
