First Aid

First Aid is the immediate treatment or care given to a person suffering from an injury or illness until more advanced care is provided or the person recovers. The University's goal in providing and maintaining, so far as is reasonably practicable, a safe and healthy work environment for its workers, students and visitor includes ensuring first aid supplies and assistance are available to achieve and maintain a desired level of first aid coverage. Further information regarding First Aid coverage is available in the First Aid Guideline under "Resources" below.

Deans and Directors are responsible for the assessment of their workplaces and providing first aid resources and trained personnel to a degree which is consistent with the nature of tasks and activities carried out.

The Safety and Employment Relations team can assist with the arrangement of first aid boxes, first aid training and defibrillators. University First Aiders, first aid boxes and defibrillators are strategically located throughout campuses and a list of their current locations can be found under Resources below.

If you wish to order a first aid box for your area, become a University First Aid Officer or renew your First Aid Qualifications please submit a First Aid Request form to
