portable first aid rooms
Within any industry or business, injuries or illnesses can come out of nowhere and require immediate medical attention. For many businesses, this means a quick visit to the first aid room in their corner office. But in construction, mining, manufacturing, agricultural and industrial services (to name just a few industries) there is no ‘corner first aid office’ to go to. And that’s where a portable first aid room built from a sturdy shipping container comes in mighty handy! Because when you’re working in an industry where accidents happen on an almost daily basis, a portable first aid room is an absolute necessity.
The Legal Requirements to Have a 1st Aid Room
In Australia, the legal requirement for a first aid room is dependent on the specific workplace and the level of risk associated with the work being conducted. The Safe Work Australia ‘Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations 2011’ outline the requirements for first aid in the workplace. Under the WHS Regulations, employers must provide:
Adequate and appropriate first aid facilities, including a first aid kit and, if necessary, a first aid room.
A sufficient number of trained first aiders to provide first aid at the workplace.
Information about the location of first aid facilities and the names of first aiders to all workers at the workplace.
The requirements for having an actual first aid room (rather than just having a first aid kit on hand) are determined by a risk assessment of the workplace. Workplaces with a high level of risk, such as those mentioned above, are required to have a dedicated first aid room for obvious reasons. Having a first aid room on site is also a legal requirement, and the Occupational Health and Safety Act dictates that you have to have one of these rooms available if your construction site has over 100 people working, or at any other workspace with over 200 people, regardless of the industry.
Additionally, the Australian Standard AS3745-2010 ‘Planning for Emergencies in Facilities’ provides guidance on the design and construction of first aid rooms, as well as the equipment and supplies that should be provided. This is naturally the blueprint for the portable container first aid rooms Tiger Shipping Containers build.

BENEFITS OF A PORTABLE FIRST
A portable first aid room for your worksite has a host of benefits attached to it because you can have it in place from the first day of the project to ensure you’re ready for any accidents or illnesses. It also gives you the freedom to move it around your worksite as required, or to move it to a completely different worksite.
first aid rooms for farms, music
festivals, trade shows and more
Originally, portable first aid container rooms were meant for use on construction and mining sites, but due to their versatility, you can use them anywhere. This includes at markets, music festivals, rallies, outdoor concerts, trade shows, travelling roadshows and consumer exhibitions. They even work well where you need a more permanent first aid station, like caravan sites or farms.
