OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTHTRAINING
FIRST AID TRAININGTRAINING
First Aid’s importance is recognised all over the world and its capacity to make a difference cannot be overstated.
While preserving life is the primary objective, First Aid can also bring relief from crippling pain and prevent medical conditions from deteriorating until more advanced care arrives.
A First Aid practitioner is often the first person on the scene who can take action. First Aid training focuses on being able to provide immediate care to sick or injured patients until full medical help is available.
Administering First Aid promptly and effectively can make an undeniable contribution to a patient’s recovery. In an overwhelming number of cases, First Aid has been the difference between life and death.
Benefits of First Aid Training
First Aid training gives you the confidence to step in to help when an emergency occurs. The action you take by responding straight away, could save a life or prevent a person suffering permanent disability.
Another benefit of having First Aid knowledge is being able to identify potential hazards. Prevention is always going to be better than a cure.
Your senses, after First Aid training, will be alert to dangers. Minimising risk is invaluable, both in the home and in the workplace
