Educational environment to address the first aid needs of individuals or groups.
WHO will benefit? Educators and students. There is a legal requirement for work places to take all practical steps to provide first aid facilities (Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995) and to have procedures in place for dealing with emergencies (HSE Act, 1992). Education in rapid immediate first aid will make a difference to an individual’s outcome and can save a life, allowing time for the advance trauma medical teams to take over. Your individual actions will make a difference.
WHAT will you gain? Appropriate first aid, for your educational environment to address the first aid needs of individuals or groups. The knowledge and confidence to help participants or members of the public.
WHEN is a good time for you have a course? Anytime, the sooner the better.
WHERE? Ideally your work environment either outside or inside. If that is not an option then a local venue will be provided.
WHY? We all need first aid training in order to reduce pain and suffering of a casualty/casualties, to save lives if possible.
HOW? By having a first aid course that meets your requirements, courses which meet New Zealand Resuscitation level two guidelines and an instructor with experience and knowledge of trauma, casualty and first aid training.
