First Aid Courses For The Workplace
Sometimes workplaces can be dangerous spaces. No matter how many risk assessments we do or health and safety officers we appoint, there are always the dangers – a freak accident or sudden illness can strike with very little warning. When that occurs having someone on hand who’s able to provide first aid on the spot until professional medical help arrives can potentially be the difference between life and death. All modern workplaces should have a designated first aid officer with up-to-date qualifications, and part of the responsibilities of a worksite manager is to ensure you have staff members on hand with current first aid training.
Any kind of workplace can experience medical emergencies – whether you’re in an office, a warehouse, or a factory working with heavy machinery. Medical emergencies can also take many forms – minor cuts & bruises, burns, crushing injuries, lacerations & serious blood loss, and respiratory issues, or cardiac issues to name a few examples. Good first aid training prepares you to assist in these situations, as well as many others. The knowledge and skills you gain from competent first aid training allows you to calmly and capably respond to a serious injury or illness, and can potentially even save lives. This is also valuable for medical professionals arriving on scene, giving them someone who is familiar with both the patient’s condition and with basic first aid who can promptly update them on the situation.
FirstAidPro’s training courses are delivered as a single, one day program and are available on any day of the week – including Saturdays and Sundays. This means you don’t need to be absent from your workplace for a significant amount of time, if at all. But the benefit you gain for that time is significant – giving you the skills to intervene in a medical emergency and potentially prevent significant or permanent injury, or even death.
Our flagship training course, HLTAID011 Provide First Aid, is available from any of our training venues throughout Australia. In addition, for community groups and workplaces we can potentially come to you – providing professional on-site first aid training with all materials and resources provided.
If you’ve ever found yourself in the situation of having someone nearby urgently needing medical assistance, you’ll understand well the importance of having first aid trained personnel close to hand. But if someone around you was bleeding, unconscious, or possibly even not breathing, and you were the only person on-hand to help, would you have the knowledge and skills to be able to help?
The certification you receive from a FirstAidPro training course is nationally recognised – we’re an Registered Training Organisation in Australia (RTO #40407) – and suitable for all kinds of situations, both professional and private. And in addition to our main training courses such as HLTAID011 Provide First Aid, we also offer more specialised first aid training suited for specific professional contexts – including manual handling, safety training for the construction industry, and low voltage rescue.
Whether you’re looking to update your current certification, or upskill yourself in areas such as First Aid, CPR, Basic Emergency Life Support (aka BELS), Low Voltage Rescue, Manual Handling, or White Card, we’re able to help. Get in touch with us to find out more – or simply book a course online from right here on the website.
