Event Organisers ‘Duty of Care’.
No matter what event you are having ‘large or small’ it is important that you have access to first aid supples and people who can administer first aid if needed. It is important to prepare for unexpected incidents and have a first aid kit available.

First Point of Contact First Aid
When holding an event it is important to have a designated area where people can seek first aid. This needs to be clearly sign posted and have a trained first aider to hand. For larger events it can be advised to contact you local ambulance service who will be able to guide you on the provisions you should offer.

Who Can Provide First Aid
Anyone can administer basic first aid for cuts, scrapes and falls. In more severe cases or sickness or injury the initial first responder may need to contact a doctor or ambulance service. When holding an event make sure key phone numbers are available that you have access to mobile phone coverage if a landline is not available.

There are many occasions when you will find that you need to have access to a mobile first aid kit.

Having a portable kit when visiting a work site or while in the bush can be an essential piece of equipment to provide immediate first aid.

All Safety have a great bum bag first aid kit that attaches easily around your waste with a comfortable strap. The kit includes essential items to treat small emergencies, knocks, grazes and falls.

A Cardiac Arrest is one of the biggest causes of death within Australia. Often it is possible to treat. In the majority of situations it is possible that a person will survive if defibrillation is provided quickly. This is usually within 5 minutes.

All Safety Products would like to see more defibrillators available to the public in workplaces and public areas. Defibrillators are easy to use and require minimal training.

Lives can be saved by placing Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in locations where people gather. 

Do Cardiac Arrests happen at the workplace?

Yes, a sudden cardiac arrest can occur suddenly. This can happen to men and women of all ages and contributes to 13% of deaths in workplaces across Australia.

When you work as a tradesman you are always vulnerable to the odd slip, fall or accident.

It is important that you are prepared if an emergency does occur. There are a number of workplace safety and tradesperson essentials that you should ensure you have available.

All Safety Products recommends the following essentail safety kit items:

1. Every tradesman should have a first aid kit handy in their van or workshop. These first aid kits contain many of the essential items that you may need when an accident occurs. Al Safety stock both wall mounted first aid kits and more portable versions as backpack or handy carry cases.

Everyone has likely spotted one in their workplace or perhaps at a public venue or even discreetly tucked away in a cupboard at home but did you ever wonder why first aid kits are so essential to have on hand?

When you work within an industry that requires you to often work independently, to attend construction zones as well as a wide range of homes and buildings around Perth, safety should be a top priority. That's why tradespeople of all sorts need to have an up-to-date stock of safety equipment stored in their ute or van in case of an emergency.

The nature of sports clubs lends itself to an atmosphere of exertion and exhilaration but this also comes with the ever-present risk of injury during training and games. And thus having a well-stocked first aid kit should be a top priority for Perth sports club management.

Childcare centres have an enormous responsibility − they are in charge of looking after our most valuable treasure, our children, and they take this responsibility very seriously. While they aim to create safe play environments for children, it is inevitable that even under careful supervision, there will always be spills and knocks when little ones play.

All Safety Products have a range of first aid products and supplies that are ”CERTIFIED AND APPROVED" to the relevant Australian Standards and BSI Benchmarks.

All Safety Products are pleased to offer advice and give information on first aid supplies that you may need for your nursing home or facility. We are also available to visit you onsite to discuss your needs and draw up a complete package for your care home. Visits are available in the Perth Metro area. Country visits will incur travel fees.

Also you are available to buy our products directly at our online store 24/7.
