First Aid Facilities

The University has a system of first aid, including trained and equipped first aiders. Each College/Portfolio has a First Aid Coordinator (PDF 301KB) , they provide administrative support for the first aiders in their Colleges/Portfolios. See the First Aid Procedures.

First aid rooms are available in various locations across the Bedford Park campus. First aid kits are widely distributed throughout the University.

The first aiders can advise regarding the location of first aid kits and rooms in their areas.

Each work area is required to undertake a First Aid Requirements Assessment (DOC 108KB)  to determine the number of first aiders required and the content and location of first aid kits for their area, and the need for any other first aid facilities (eg. deluge facilities).

First Aid Indemnity

Staff will be indemnified if they have made themselves available for, and have undertaken, appropriate training and if they acted in accordance with their training and exercised their best judgement at the time and if they have not engaged in misconduct.

In addition, no staff members, including those with specific first aid training, are required to carry out first aid procedures that they are not comfortable with even if they have been fully trained in those procedures.
