How are First Aid Supplies provided?

DCU Health and Safety Office has engaged an external contractor to check and replenish the First Aid Cabinets in the foyer of all buildings. We ask First Aiders to contact the Health and Safety Office when they use any first aid supplies to ensure First Aid Cabinets restocked.

All other First Aid Cabinets, including those in labs and offices, are the responsibility of the School/Unit. 

How do I get supplies for a local first aid bag?

The DCU Health and Safety Office manages the first aid bags in the lobbies of the main buildings on campus only; any other smaller kits - if wanted - can be purchased and managed locally.

How do I contact a local First Aider Responder (FAR)?

A list of qualified First Aider Responders is typically displayed next to the first aid box in the foyer of each building.

If no first-aider is available, call DCU Security on (01 700) 5999.
