Capalaba is the second most populous suburb in the City of Redlands, Queensland. The suburb shares a border with the city of Brisbane, and many Brisbane folk consider it a gateway to the coastal Redlands region. Its residents also enjoy quick access to many conveniences as the suburb has a major bus station, large shopping malls, and industrial zones. Because of its location and ease of access to both commercial and residential areas, Capalaba’s demographic is one that makes it a likely place that people in this suburb will need first aid skills and be certified in first aid for their work.
What is First Aid?
In the event of injury, illness, or medical emergency, conducting first aid has 3 major goals: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery. The proper use of first aid knowledge and skills can save a life, alleviate the pain experienced by the patient, and reduce the time needed to recover from the injury or illness. First aid is not limited to providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); a first aid course covers many subjects such as using various first aid tools and techniques properly, responding to different types of medical emergencies, and even preventing and addressing workplace-specific injuries.
What Are the Key Benefits of Learning First Aid?
There are many personal and professional benefits of learning first aid. Learning first aid allows you to identify the risks in your home or workplace and take steps to reduce the danger they pose. Most injuries and illnesses take place at home or at work, and knowing first aid skills and techniques allows you to help people— family, colleagues, or even strangers— in the event of a medical emergency. What’s more, knowing first aid can improve your employability in many industries and workplace settings, and taking a first aid class also earns you points for Continuing Professional Development.
