First Aid Awareness provides general information on the basic principles of assisting injured individuals and transitioning care to medical professionals as required. This program is designed to help individuals correctly identify the cause of an emergency and covers a series of limited emergency measures that can be used even by people with no previous medical training.
Although this First Aid Awareness course is addressed to people working in industries with an elevated workplace hazard risk, any employee can benefit from the incident management techniques in this program. Candidates applying for management position, for example, customarily undergo this training before their promotion interview in order to complete their CV.
This is a list of the industries where First Aid Awareness is frequently required:
- Logging & Forestry.
- Agriculture & Food.
- Hospitality & Tourism.
- Education & Research.
Because organizations are legally mandated to create a safe work environment for their employees, it follows that they are also the ones responsible for the purchase and implementation of a First Aid Awareness program. This is even more so the case in industries that commonly report a high number of lost time claims.
The worker’s obligation is to complete the training, on the one hand, and ensure that they implement the strategies and techniques they acquired throughout the program, on the other. Still, many job candidates prefer to attain this course before the actual interview as a way to enhance their CVs and hiring prospects.
In order to be certified in First Aid Awareness, the ideal candidate will show a firm grasp of first aid principles alongside thorough knowledge of which authorities must be alerted given specific emergency situations. Students must also know at least three ways to protect themselves while administering first aid, at least three components of a first aid kit, as well as be aware of any medical concerns at the site of an accident, be able to precisely communicate medical conditions to trained personnel, and more.
Employees who require a certificate in First Aid Awareness should review this course once per year. What you learn during this program can, one day, save either your life or that of a colleague, which is why it is essential that you remain up to date with the latest safety protocols and first aid strategies.
Students often purchase First Aid Awareness alongside Fire Extinguisher, Fire Safety, and Heat Stress Prevention.
