I am a First Aid Officer
If you are a First Aid Officer, there are a few questions you should regularly ask yourself:
- Are my contact details up to date? You may have moved buildings or offices and forgotten to update your details with the WHS Unit. Check the First Aid Contacts List.
- When does my certificate run out? You should receive a reminder to complete your update but it is a good idea to keep an eye on this yourself. If your certificate has expired, or is due to expire soon, check the PODS Calendar for upcoming first aid courses.
- Am I receiving my allowance? If you don't regularly check your payslip, you may not notice if your allowance has been cut off. This may occur if your certification has expired without you realising. Please contact your Payroll Officer if you are unsure of the status of your allowance.
- Are your local first aid kits being regularly checked by Accidental First Aid? The last check was completed at the Wollongong Campus in late March/early April. If your kit was not checked during this time, it's location may not be listed on the WHS Database which is provided to Accidental. First Aid Officers will be contacted prior to Accidental performing their checks to give you time to organise for access to be available if required.
If you need to make any updates to your information, or have any queries, contact the WHS Unit on email@example.com.
