First Aid

First aid in the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) context is a critical component of ensuring prompt and appropriate care for injured or ill workers. OHS guidelines stress the importance of having trained personnel equipped to administer immediate assistance in the event of accidents or medical emergencies in the workplace. Establishing well-equipped first aid stations, providing necessary supplies, and ensuring that designated individuals are trained in first aid procedures are essential. OHS protocols also emphasize the importance of regularly reviewing and updating first aid procedures, conducting drills, and raising awareness among employees to create a responsive and prepared environment that can swiftly address health emergencies and minimize the impact of injuries or illnesses at work.
