We understand how much of a headache it can be for both workplaces and our stockists to choose the right first aid kit to comply and be properly prepared. That’s where FastAid’s R-Series steps in!
The R-Series is our unique and simple arrangement of our first aid kits into a risk-rated matrix. Our R-Series range is nationally WHS compliant, saving you the worry and confusion of specific state requirements. It’s easy!
Now let’s go a step further and explain the difference between ‘low risk’ and ‘high risk’ workplaces.
What is a low-risk workplace?
A low-risk workplace means a workplace where workers are not exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness such as offices, shops or libraries. Potential work-related injuries and illnesses requiring first aid would be minor in nature.
What is a high-risk workplace?
A high-risk workplace means a workplace where workers are exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness and would require first aid. Examples of workplaces that may be considered high risk are: mobile plant, manufacturing plants, construction, mining, trades, warehousing and food manufacturing.
