What Is First Aid?
First Aid is the initial treatment provided to an injured or sick person until full medical care becomes available.
This initial care is vital for the recovery of the patient and can even be life-saving in some cases.
In most emergency situations, the First Aid providers are not medical professionals. That’s why First Aid is limited to basic treatment that can be learned through minimal training.
Why Do You Need To Learn First Aid?
Learning first aid is an empowering achievement that everyone can benefit from. Instead of feeling helpless during medical emergencies, you can take control, assess the situation properly, and take action.
An officially recognised training certification can also boost your employment prospects. Regardless of the industry you are in, this life-saving skill is a boon to any workplace. Your employer will appreciate the fact that there is a certified First Aider who can assist the company in complying with workplace safety standards.
Speaking of which, workplace compliance is another critical factor for learning First Aid.
WorkSafe Victoria, under Victorian WorkCover Authority ensures that employers comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHS Act of 2004) and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (OHS Regulations of 2017) in providing proper First Aid facilities and establishing first aid protocols for a safe work environment.
Under these standards, First Aid training requirements are dependent on how large the organisation is and the risk assessment of the workplace.
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere. And they can happen to anyone. Whether you’re at home, at work, or out traveling, being prepared by having learned First Aid can save a life. You might even save the life of someone you love.
Are You Qualified to Do First Aid?
There’s a big difference between a trained First Aider and a first aider who has only vague knowledge of what to do in an emergency.
First Aid training — proper First Aid training — means you’re able to act on concrete information and proceed step-by-step in most common medical emergencies.
Australia Wide First Aid can help you gain the skills to be a qualified and confident First Aider. With our endorsed First Aid courses — streamlined for the benefit of busy lives of Victorians — there’s no better organisation you can trust for your First Aid training.
