What Is First Aid?
First aid is the simple act of providing assistance to a sick or injured individual until professional help can arrive and take the patient to a medical facility that can provide full health care. First aid covers a wide breadth of skills and competencies, with anything from basic hygiene to more complex skills like Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Australia Wide First Aid offers various types of first aid courses, allowing students to be prepared for most emergency situations and know how to handle them when the time comes.
Why Is It Important to Learn First Aid?
The sudden occurrence of a medical situation makes it imperative for people to have the skill to provide first aid at a moment’s notice. However, it’s important to understand that first aid covers skills that are more than simply dressing a wound or alleviating pain. It can also apply to skills such as the correct way to provide basic life support or how to administer an auto-injector (Epi-Pen) properly when someone is suffering from an anaphylactic attack.
Australia Wide First Aid has training classes that cater to a wide variety of situations with its various short courses on first aid. Most of these courses only take a few hours to complete and they can impart students with the necessary skills to provide first aid in the correct manner. All training received is nationally recognised and can be applied in any workplace or community setting.
Providing First Aid in the Workplace
Many organisations impose various safety regulations that companies need to adhere to in their respective workplace. Groups like the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) require some employees working in specific conditions to be trained in various safety procedures in case of a workplace accident.
For instance, those working in the electrical sector need to know what to do in case an individual needs to be rescued from a live LV panel accident. Similarly, an employee suffering from an asthma attack might need assistance from their fellow co-worker, who can then apply the proper first aid procedures to help that person.
Workplace safety is a serious issue that we at Australia Wide First Aid understand. This is why many of our courses specifically focus on the workplace setting. We have training courses such as Emergency First Aid that specifically covers the workplace and what employees need to do in order to address any incident. The completion of these courses is in full compliance with the guidelines set by various safety organisations.
