Alsco understands that purchasing and installing a First Aid Kit is easy. What is increasingly difficult to manage is keeping a First Aid kit "appropriately stocked". In order to be appropriately stocked two key elements must be fulfilled.
(1)A sufficient level of specific supplies must be stored in ratio to the amount of employees on site and in balance with the hazard probability of the workplace.
(2)Supplies must be of a high enough quality to be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
Alsco guarantees these key elements are met through a quarterly on-site maintenance service. A professional First Aid Service Representative will visit each of your First Aid kits and routinely refresh your entire supply of quick access consumables and re-stock any used or expired injury specific modules. This ensures that there is an appropriate level of serviceable supplies in every serviced First Aid kit.
For unanticipated high-levels of usage Alsco also offers a next-day postage service for client re-stocking upon requests, a service offered at no extra charge.
Alsco also achieves a level of "appropriate stocking" by maintaining frequent communication channels with its supplier and the Therapeutic Goods Administration. This consultation keeps Alsco at the forefront of First Aid supply quality.
Likewise, Alsco's managed service ensures that your Automated External Defibrillator is 100% ready, 100% of the time. With a regular servicing schedule, your AED's software is kept up-to-date, and both the pads and batteries are replaced as required.
Maintaining a workplace First Aid kit has become as much about satisfying legislation as it has about providing medical assistance in the case of an emergency.
The majority of businesses have no avenue through which to be updated about changes in legislation regarding First Aid requirements. However, Alsco deals with a range of different sized businesses, from all different industries, all across Australia. It is this experience that allows Alsco to stay at the forefront of legislative changes and puts Alsco in a position to keep current and equip all its serviced First Aid kits with up-to-date supplies.
Keeping First Aid Kits up to date can prove a difficult task. This chore is made increasingly difficult if different materials and equipment are supplied by different sources. Alsco offers a full range of First Aid solutions to help consolidate your supply chain. We are one supplier who can provide a managed service for eyewash stations, automated external defibrillators, vehicle first aid kits, portable first aid kits and wall mounted first aid kits to suit different sized businesses and different industries.
We have an exhaustive range of First Aid supply solutions and can even customise our kit contents and managed service schedule in order to satisfy your requirements.
In order to satisfy the legislative standard First Aid supplies must not only be present in a sufficient quantity but they must be of a standard of quality approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration, Australia's regulatory agency for medical drugs and devices.
Alsco prides itself on not only meeting this standard of quality but far surpassing the minimum standard. Not to be compared with cheap international imports or goods supplied by a local chemist, Alsco's First Aid supplies are researched and developed by an Australian company and are of a benchmark set for hospital use. Plaster strips and gauze is made for rugged use, liquids and creams are chemically balanced and specialised equipment is provided to make application quicker, easier and more accurate.
A part of Occupational Health & Safety requirements is the documentation of emergency plans and safety measures. Alsco's consistent on-site visits and log book maintenance compile a sufficient amount of data to satisfy most OH&S requirements. Alsco improves its service data collection with a state of the art service management program, which can generate electronic service logs for several sites across the country. Alsco specialise in Managed Services and managing the data involved.
Rental programs give our customers numerous financial advantages. From the very first day of service there are significant savings as our kits and equipment are installed with no installation fees, no deposit and no capital outlay. The small monthly fee remains constant throughout the entire service agreement.
Having a small, simple flat fee also improves cashflow management. Unexpected capital expenditure can suddenly burden business cashflow and affect profitability but a constant fee can be measured and accounted for.
Lastly, rental service fees are a tax deductible business expenditure. This can prove to be a big tax benefit, especially when compared to the perplexity of capital depreciation.
Alsco pioneered the concept of assembling supplies according to specific injury response. Frequently when First Aid is required there is a level of panic and rush in the situation. This is not conducive to locating suitable First Aid supplies to respond to the emergency, even for a trained workplace First Aid officer. Therefore Alsco has taken the initiative to group relevant supplies in a diverse range of clearly marked modules. In the case of a hot water burn, a Burns Module can be easily located and the sealed module opened to reveal only the appropriate supplies to treat a burn. In case of an eye injury, the eyewash station is easily located and accessible.
This system has changed the way First Aid kits are supplied in the industry and Alsco is always evolving its modules to give its clients the best opportunity for First Aid success.
