The First Aid at Work course is suitable for anyone who may find themselves in a position that requires them to take charge of an incident that requires first aid until more experienced help arrives.

Programmes designed to meet the minimum requirements for persons to be certified as first aiders in the workplace will also need to take into account the Department of Labour guidelines and meet the New Zealand Qualifications Authority requirements. Current Department of Labour guidelines on providing first aid training are available from http://www.dol.govt.nz.

Employers should carry out a workplace first aid needs assessment to identify any job or task specific significant hazards, e.g. Hazardous substances, Hazardous tools, Hazardous machinery, Hazardous loads, Hazardous animals, Working at height, Large industrial sites and Commercial diving.
