First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice 2014

On 30 May 2014, the new First Aid Code came into effect, replacing the 2004 Code.  It is based on Safe Work Australia's model first-aid Code, with some minor variations (e.g. reduced recommended items in first aid kits for workplaces that are not remote).

On the same day, the following WHS Codes were amended to reflect the recent amendments to Queensland's WHS Regulation:

  • Managing Noise and Preventing Hearing Loss at Work Code of Practice 2011;
  • Foundry Code of Practice 2004;
  • How to Manage and Control Asbestos in the Workplace Code of Practice 2011; and
  • How to Safely Remove Asbestos Code of Practice 2011.
