Are your work vehicles compliant?

Regardless if it’s a fleet of company vehicles you maintain, or just a solo company vehicle, the July 2019 WHS Code of Practice specifies that a portable first aid kit should be provided in the vehicle of mobile workers if that is their workplace.

“A portable first aid kit should be provided in the vehicles of mobile workers if that is their workplace, for example couriers, taxi drivers, sales representatives, bus drivers and inspectors.”

It is also helpful to understand the code of practice definition of ‘workplace’.

“Any place where work is carried out for a business or undertaking and includes any place where a worker goes, or is likely to be, while at work. This may include offices, factories, shops, construction sites, vehicles, ships, aircraft or other mobile structures on land or water.”

All contained in a medium sized case with internal compartments ready for that unexpected road side emergency.

Safety tip: Remember, when stowing the kit in the vehicle, ensure it is safely located so as not to become a projectile in a collision.
