 1300 716 410 W australiantraininginstitute.com.au Where to place the first aid kits 1. Make allowance for multiple levels i.e. first aid kits on both levels 2. First Aid Kits must be easily accessible to adults 3. Larger centres may require a first aid kit outdoors and in each room 4. Smaller centres may share first aid kits between rooms 5. A first aid kit is required for excursions and evacuations First aid kits Extract from ACECQA National Regulations: Regulations 89168 A centre-based service must provide an appropriate number of suitable first aid kits that are easily recognisable and readily accessible to adults. The service must have policies and procedures about the administration of first aid to children being educated and cared for by the service. A family day care educator must provide a suitable first aid kit at the residence or family day care venue that is easily recognisable and readily accessible to adults. First aid kits should also be taken when leaving the service premises for excursions routine outings or emergency evacuations. http://files.acecqa.gov.au/files/National-Quality-Framework-Resources-Kit/NQF02-Guide-to-ECS-Law-and-Regs-130902.pdf A belt bag is one way of taking a modified first aid kit on an excursion or to the outdoor play space. First aid kit suppliers might advise about the contents of first aid kits. Kits should be checked regularly to ensure they are fully stocked and no products have expired. For example a service might keep a checklist of the contents inside each first aid kit and initial the list each time the contents are checked. When determining how many first aid kits are ‘appropriate’ the service should consider the number of children in attendance as well as the proximity of rooms to each other and the distances from outdoor spaces to the nearest first aid kit. For example larger services may require a kit in each room or outside space whereas a kit between two rooms might be appropriate in a smaller service with adjoining rooms. Services might use data gathered from their incident injury trauma and illness records to determine the appropriate locations and contents for their first aid kits. First aid training providers may also be able to provide guidance. Page 59-60 http://files.acecqa.gov.au/files/National-Quality-Framework-Resources-Kit/NQF02-Guide-to-ECS-Law-and-Regs-130902.pdf
