Work Cover Victoria can provide information on first aid kits. Your workplace should conduct a Workplace Risk Assessment to determine workplace hazards and put into place a first aid kit that best suits your clinic’s/salon’s needs.
The kit contents will depend on how many employees the salon has, the nature of any hazards, and the location of the salon premises.
Kit Items should include:
- Basic first aid notes, instructions for use.
- Sterile eye pads
- Eye bath
- Individually wrapped sterile adhesive dressings
- Disposable gloves
It is advisable to include an Epi-Pen in your first aid kit, in the event that a client has an unlikely allergic reaction to any materials used in the cosmetic tattoo procedure.
In the appendix, you will find a list of State Acts and references. If you have any doubts you should consult your local health department.
