First Aid Policy
This First Aid Policy applies to all Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited (DOSCEL) workplaces.
This Policy provides an overview of what DOSCEL workplaces, particularly schools, are required to do to ensure they meet the first aid needs of students and staff at school, on approved school activities or at DOSCEL workplaces.
All students and staff have the right to feel safe and to be attended to with care when in need of first aid.
DOSCEL workplaces, particularly schools, are diverse workplaces that contain a complex range of safety hazards. DOSCEL workplaces must plan for the first aid needs of students and staff at school, on approved school activities or at DOSCEL workplaces.
This policy is designed to:
ensure the school community understands DOSCEL’s approach to first aid for students
administer first aid to students and staff when in need in a competent and timely manner
communicate student’s health problem to parents when considered necessary
provide supplies and facilities to cater for the administering of first aid
ensure all staff are informed of students with potential life threatening and serious medical conditions.
