HLTSS00027 Occupational first aid skill set

Lifesaving first aid interventions require instruction and practical training. Especially when it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injuries such as those that involve cardiac arrest, severe bleeding, multiple casualty incidents etc. These situations carry a risk of further injury to the casualty and the first aider and it is imperative that training occurs to be able to know what to do and be prepared for a real-life incident.

This course is delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and it applies to those who are responsible for the maintenance of a first aid facility and management of first aid provision in the workplace or community setting. It covers the provision of advanced first aid, oxygen, advanced resuscitation and how to monitor the casualty after treatment and handover the casualty to medical professionals for further care.

Training will ensure the participant can effectively establish and maintain and facilitate the provision of appropriate first aid including first aid resources. Participants will learn about risk assessment to establish first aid requirements, using checklists for stocking and maintaining equipment such as resuscitation and oxygen equipment and first aid kits, following manufacturer’s instructions and completing documentation.

Specific licensing requirements relating to this competency, including requirements for refresher training, should be obtained from the relevant state/territory Work Health and Safety Regulatory Authority.
