An Accident Could Be Around The Corner

An accident can happen at any time, anywhere. You could be at home, playing a sport, driving in your car or even at work when misfortune may strike.

According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, between 2013 — 14, 531,800 persons experienced a work-related injury. These injuries can be quite serious and include fractures, crush injuries and wounds. Accidents can and do happen, so it pays to be prepared with First Aid Training.

Someone That You Know

The casualty could be your partner, parent, child or friend. Every year over 20,000 people die in Australia from Heat disease, including heart attacks and angina. 80% of these occur at home, proving CPR / defibrillation within the first few minutes of a heart attack increases the rate of survival as high as 75%.

For The Workplace

Learning first aid can also improve your overall employability and job prospects. In South Australia and the other Australian States, legislation such as the work health and safety act and the Code of Proactive: First aid in the workplace can require workplaces to have employees that are trained to administer First Aid. As such, these workplaces First Aiders are required to complete a nationally accredited training course like Provide First Aid. If your workplace requires you to have First Aid, there can also be additional benefits such as a First Aid Allowance payable by the employer on top of your wages.

It Gives You The Tools To Prevent The Situation From Becoming Worse

In some situations, if a patient doesn’t receive basic first aid care immediately, their situation will often deteriorate rapidly. By being able to provide basic care, you can stabilise a patient until emergency medical services arrive. You’ll learn how to use basic household items as tools if a first aid kit is not available, meaning that you’ll be able to cope with many situations. You’ll also be trained in how to collect information and data about what’s happened and the patients’ condition. This information will be passed onto the emergency services, which saves them time — you will be a valuable link in the chain of survival.

It Encourages Safety

One of the first things you will learn during your first aid training is that you must look after yourself and ensure your own safety as a priority. It’s not being selfish. It’s being practical. Keeping yourself safe means you are in a position to help others rather than needing help yourself, learn about first aider duty of care.
