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 anaphylactic shock.
Australia Wide First Aid has training classes that cater to a wide variety of situations with its short courses in first aid. These courses only take from 2 to 5 hours to complete an equip students with the knowledge and practical skills to provide first aid confidently. All training received is nationally recognised and can be applied in any workplace or community setting.
Providing First Aid in the Workplace
Industry peak bodies set certain health and safety standards which workplaces representing these industries need to adhere to. Groups like the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) set standards that are specific to employees working with children for example. Employees working with children will in turn be required to undertake training prescribed by their industries peak body so they are confident in responding to accidents within their place of work.
Another example is those working in the electrical industry will need to be trained and know what to do in case a work colleague has an accident involving power and needs to be rescued from a live LV panel. 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 an issue Australia Wide First Aid take very seriously. That’s why our courses focus on specific workplace settings as well as at home. Our training courses such as Provide First Aid and Emergency First Aid specifically cover scenarios within the workplace and examples of what employees are likely to encounter and how to attend to any incident with confidence. Our courses are in full compliance with the guidelines set by our peak bodies and those of each industry which we trust will optimise the safety of all workplaces who’s staff have undertaken our training courses, regardless of the organisation or the industry they represent.
