When that awful day comes and there is a medical emergency, will you have everything on hand, ready for rapid response? Or will your supplies be found wanting? As mentioned in Safe Work Australia's First Aid guide, “incidents can happen without warning and in every type of workplace. It is critical that you are prepared for any first aid emergencies that could happen in yours”. A well-stocked contingency room means that you can respond to any emergency with speed and professionalism.
In Australia, the requirements of first aid are well set out in in a risk rated matrix including the number of persons that need to be catered for. View the R-Series Risk Rated First Aid Kit matrix HERE. Every workplace and institution should also have a First Aid Trauma Tent or Privacy Screen, examination table and eyewash stations.
A well thought out plan, highly visible signage and the right support equipment is essential for an effective response. Evacuation equipment should also be part of your contingency plan including colour coded warden vests and caps, emergency response Go Kits, megaphone, wheelchair, power generator, fuel (for generator), flammable storage cabinet (for fuel), electric extension leads, portable flood lights, traffic cones, portable No Entry swing-stand signs, rolls of barrier tape and traffic control batons.Amend as needed
