What about first aid for travelling or lone workers?

Employers are responsible for meeting the first aid needs of their staff working away from the main site. Employer assessments of first aid needs should determine:

  • whether those who travel long distances or are continually mobile should carry a personal first aid box; and
  • whether to provide other means of summoning help, such as a mobile phone, for employees who work alone.
