Workplace injuries are more common than you might think. According to SafeWork Australia, there were 104,770* serious compensation claims for worker injury last year alone.
The safety of your employees should always be your number one concern. It’s not just a legislative responsibility, it’s a moral one.
The most basic way to ensure this safety is by training your team in First Aid. Initial contact with an injured person is of critical importance. When your team is equipped with the necessary skills to provide effective assistance in these scenarios it can be the difference between life and death.
Barringtons’ First Aid Course
Barringtons’ first aid offering ensures your team not only has the critical skills they need but that your organisation is also complying with legislation guidelines and government imperatives. These requirements stipulate that all Australian businesses must:
- Have one qualified first aider if they employ more than 25 people;
- Provide employees with a first aid room (with qualified first aiders) if they employ more than 200 people (or more than 100 people on a construction site);
- Offer all employees adequate services for the immediate treatment of injuries and illnesses that arise in the workplace; and
- Supply effective and fully stocked first aid kits for employees.
Once you have successfully completed your training with Barringtons you’ll receive a statement of attainment in HLTAID003 Provide First Aid.
