First aid

Many businesses believe they are first aid ready for an emergency; however this isn't always the case.

St John's 5 Steps to First Aid Readiness helps you to minimise workplace risks and be better prepared to respond to emergencies.

The 5 READY steps are:

  1. Ready assessment - Have you conducted a first aid assessment of your business?
  2. Enough trained first aiders - Do you have enough to cover unplanned staff absences?
  3. Accessible first aid equipment - Is the first aid equipment in your workplace easy to find and access?
  4. Drills and procedures - Does your workplace run first aid drills and procedures?
  5. Your business activities - Have you evaluated your business activities to identify areas of increased risk?

The 5 Steps to First Aid Readiness initiative can be key to protecting employers, employees and customers.
