We have over 100 qualified first aid officers across our campuses, as well as at other University staffed sites.
First aid officers:
- provide first aid assistance to staff, students and visitors
- ensure first aid kits are stocked
- report incidents and list first aid provided in the online incident report
- provide assistance in the event of an evacuation
Become a first aid officer
First aid officers are vital to all of our workplaces and facilities. Being a first aid officer is a rewarding role and provides a first aid officer allowance on top of your normal salary.
It is up to an organisational unit to identify when a first aid officer is needed. When this happens, nominations are called and anyone within that unit can put their name forward. Nominations are considered by the Head of School/Director and a name is submitted to the Health and Safety Team. You will be contacted by Health and Safety to tell you if your nomination has been successful.
It is the responsibility of the new first aid officer to:
- contact our Health & Safety Advisor - Wellbeing to complete the relevant training
- read the First Aid Procedure (HSP 7.2)
- complete the confirmation of induction form (PDF, 35KB) and send it using internal mail to Health and Safety, Human Resource Services
