If so, there are still some things you can do to ensure you stay compliant with the law in terms of first aid cover:

  • Review your first aid needs assessment. Can you still provide the cover needed for workers who are on the premises and the activities that they are doing?  
  • If fewer people are coming into your workplace it may still be safe to operate with less first aid cover. You could also put a temporary stop to higher-risk activities.
  • Consider sharing first aid cover with another local business. Make sure they have the knowledge, experience and availability to cover the first aid needs of your business as well as their own. They will need to understand the type of illnesses and injuries you have identified in your risk assessment and have the training to deal with them.  It is also important they can get to your premises quickly if needed.
