On 30 May 2014, the new First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice 2014 was approved under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (PDF, 1.42 MB). This replaces the First Aid Code of Practice 2004 which was revoked on 29 May 2014. The First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice 2014 is based on the national model first aid code of practice with some minor variations to address issues raised by stakeholders during the review of the WHS laws in Queensland.
A code of practice provides practical guidance for people who have work health and safety duties about how to achieve the standards required under the Act, and about effective ways to identify and manage risks.
