What is first aid?
First aid is the immediate treatment provided to an injured or sick person in an emergency situation, until full medical care becomes available.
This initial care is vital for the recovery of the patient and can, in some cases, even be life-saving.
First aid is limited to basic treatment that can be learned through minimal training.
Becoming qualified and confident through our endorsed first aid courses means knowing how to act on concrete information and proceeding step-by-step in a medical emergency.
Why learn first aid?
Learning first aid is empowering. Instead of feeling helpless at a medical emergency you can, it enables you to properly assess the situation and take action.
An officially recognised first aid certificate will boost your employment prospects.
The resourcefulness and sense of responsibility demonstrated by learning life-saving skills do not go unnoticed by prudent employers. They will appreciate the value a certified first aider brings, not only helping the company comply with workplace safety obligations, but also being able to help should the unexpected happens.
These workplace obligations, overseen by WorkSafe Victoria, ensure employer compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHS Act of 2004) and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (OHS Regulations of 2017). This includes providing proper first aid facilities and establishing first aid protocols for safe work environments.
Medical emergencies can happen anywhere, any time. And they can happen to anyone.
Having learned first aid, whether you’re at home, at work, or out traveling, being prepared can save a life. You might even save the life of someone you love.
