All the components to meet the appropriate risk assessed workplace First Aid Kit. All of our First Aid Kits are available in a contents only purchase. If you would a refit or refill of your current first aid kit, then either please ring us on 1300 361 222 to arrange it over the phone. This will give you just the contents of each First Aid Kit and no container or bag. This is a great way of refilling or restocking your current first aid kits whether paying for the casing.
The other three components could be seen as extra / additional modules of a First Aid kit.  They are:

1. Outdoors,
2. Remote, and
3. any risk of Burn Injuries. 

Outdoors is fairly self explanatory. If you conduct work outside of the office environment then you will need to cover yourself for potential stings, abrasions, minor cuts and open wounds.  Hence Safe Work Australia recommend you include a heavy crepe bandage and some form of sting relief.

Defining remote is more of a trickier situation.  There is nothing written in black and white regarding the definition of what is considered a remote work environment.  We here at First Aid Kits Australia believe that if you are outside of 60 minutes of permanent (and manned) medical facilities then you are at a higher risk of not receiving the required treatment in time to minimise your injuries and maximising your recovery.  Therefore we define remote area as anything outside of 60 minutes from permanent and staffed medical assistance.  Within this 60 minutes you must considered whether anything will hold you up or delay your run i.e. overflowing creeks, dirt roads, traffic congestion or public transport. 

The following lists come directly from the Safe Work Australia - First Aid in the workplace code of practice (2013) and outline the absolute minimum requirements considered essential in a First Aid Kit.

We have every type of standard or custom made kit to cover any workplace situation.  Keeping in theme, we hold the largest range in Australia or First Aid Kits to meet any WHS or personal situation.

The National framework for First Aid Kits in the workplace has been set by Safe Work Australia.  In 2012 (and then updated in 2013) they grouped all of the state's individual legislations together and formulated their Safe Work Australia Code of Conduct - First Aid in the workplace.  This now gives the workers rights to take court action against their employer if they feel that any breach of the legislation has occurs.  

We are keeping abreast of the latest changes and trends in the WHS space.  Our Safe Work Matters website has many useful and handy links that will keep you up to date.

We have also developed the following pages to help you determine your risk levels and appropriate First Aid kit requirements.
