Introduction to First Aid Training
Not everybody understands the importance of First-Aid. A First Aider can most certainly save a life. There are a lot of people that might think that because it’s such a short and basic course that it might not be as comprehensive. The main idea of the first aider is to assist those in need as soon as possible. It often happens that due to the training and quick response, the first aider stabilises the patient long before further help arrives. If there are no first aiders around, it’s very possible that a serious patient might not survive until further help arrives. This is why it’s important to have decent first aid knowledge. Everybody should have some sort of first aid training. If you have children, you should be standing first in line to get the basics of medical attention. By knowing how to apply the basics, you can rest assured that if something unforeseen happens, you know what to do.

It’s basic actions that can save a life. By completing a comprehensive course, you will have the confidence to approach emergency scenes.
Our courses are HWSETA approved, and we are registered with the department of labour. According to the OHS Act of ’93 you need at least 1 first aider and one first aid box for every 50 employees. This, however, is not always advisable. If you have high risks or large floor space, we usually recommend getting at least 1 first aider for every department. You need to make sure that you have at least 1 first aider on every shift. This will ensure that your first aid team can be as effective as possible. We provide first aid training from level 1 – 3. For most companies, level 1 first aid will be more than sufficient.
