ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

Workplace First Aid Legal Requirements

Current legislation mandates that all workplaces (PCBU) ensure that an adequate number of workers are trained to administer workplace first aid or have access to a sufficient number of trained first aiders.

An ‘adequate number’ of first aiders may vary depending on many circumstances, such as the number of workers, the nature of their work, the physical size of the workplace, etc.

The New Zealand Resuscitation Council, the standard-setting body for resuscitation and first aid, recommends a Basic trained responder for workplace first aid in their training framework.

This Work Safe Workplace first aid 8-hour course covers all suggested skills and knowledge for Basic trained responders.
