We've put together a quick guide for everything you need to know about first aid for different trade groups.
In Australia, many trade groups are required to follow the guidelines set forth by the Safe Work Australia Code of Practice for First Aid in the Workplace. These guidelines outline the necessary contents of an appropriate first aid kit per trade and the recommended quantities of each item.
Electrician first aid kits
Some important items that must be included in an electrician first aid kit include non-adhesive dressings, sterile eye pads, and burn dressings. Additionally, it's recommended that electricians have access to an automated external defibrillator (AED) on worksites, as electrical accidents can result in cardiac arrest.
