First Aid Kits in Company Vehicles

Unread post by Mc Safe » 19 Sep 2017, 13:03

Hi there.

Understanding that company vehicles are classified as a work premises and that we need to provide the required first aid kits for 5 or more employees in a work place and also understanding that we only have 2 employees per company vehicle, what would the suggestion be with regards to required first aid kits in company vehicles?

Would we go with the regulation 7 shops and office first aid kits or would we go with a more customized vehicle first aid kit, bearing in mind the difference in products for either kit.

Can you also explain what the difference is between regulation 7 and regulation 3 first aid kits are and where where does the regulation 7 come from when they refer to regulation 3 in the OHS act?

Thank you.

Hi there

Reg 7 makes provision for a spillage kit, it was part of a draft regulation that wasn’t implemented (would thus be good practice to implement).

It would not be requirement to have a first aid kit for a vehicle if there is less than 5 persons but good practice.
