Safety Net First Aid
This workshop has been designed to enable other team members to have the confidence to assist certified First Aiders in the case of an emergency and/or offer initial first aid. Especially important if your official First Aider is off-site when emergency strikes. This is an ideal course for workplaces with a lot of staff or customers, such as supermarkets or factories – not everyone in your workplace needs to be trained in first aid, but the more staff who have the fundamental basics, the better the outcome of any medical emergency.
Attendees will learn how to react to the following: DRSABCD and AED usage “Primary Survey”, shock, choking, asthma, stroke, seizures, diabetic emergencies, severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), heart conditions, fractures, wounds & bleeding control, burns, sprains and strains. This will enable wider team members to work alongside your organisation’s qualified first aiders to assist and act as an extra ‘safety net’ if an emergency situation occurs.
The Safety Net First Aid workshop can cater for up to 20 participants (though 10–12 is ideal). Heart Saver will supply each participant with a certificate of participation. $500+GST per workshop.
We mock up an accident in your workplace and test the capabilities of your staff around their response. Our instructors monitor the situation and report back on practical ways your team can respond more effectively. A fantastic Health & Safety option, to ensure your staff are fully trained in the event of an workplace medical emergency.
Our audit and report on their response to the scenario will result in attendees being more confident and competent in the case of a medical emergency on-site. They will be taught best practice and equipped with the practical skills necessary to react to possible scenarios relevant to your particular firm/industry. Training and information have a better chance of “sticking” when it’s given in a relevant location and situation. This is a great way to refresh your trained first aiders and put them to their test and their learnings into action. It’s ideal for H&S supervisors wanting to test their team’s capabilities.
