LVR & CPR Training Courses in Brisbane
Most people are unaware of LVR Training, although it is increasingly being recognised as an important skill for those working in areas with constant exposure to electricity such as electricians, or industries where wiring or electrical components are extensively used.
Under the Electrical Safety Act 2002, and the Work, Health and Safety Act 2011, employers are obliged to provide both safety training and safety equipment to prevent any electrical emergencies in workplaces where there is a high risk of exposure to live wires.
LVR is an acronym for Low Voltage Rescue. Fluid First Aid conducts LVR CPR training courses in Brisbane that will provide you with the knowledge on how to deal with accidental electrocution, together with CPR training.
Danger Resulting from Electrical Contact
People that come in contact with exposed live wires will experience electrical shock. Exposure to live wires in homes and at workplaces are common accidents that occur frequently.
The result of this contact with live high voltage wires is electrocution, which more often than not results in death. Exposure to low voltage wires may in some case cause death, but often results in electric shock and burns.
Taking the LVR course will equip you with not only knowledge on low voltage rescue, but covers the risk management component for this type of emergency as well. This teaches you not only how to save someone from electrocution, but also how to keep yourself from also becoming a casualty.
Low Voltage Electrical Burns
Any form of direct contact with live wiring will cause an electrical current to be transmitted directly to the person, causing electrical shock.
A large voltage will almost certainly kill instantly, while lower voltage can kill if current flows through the central nervous system or heart, or may cause a person to become unconscious. A person suffering from low voltage electrical shock will most likely suffer electrical burns.
Typical electrical injuries that occur include:
- Fatal high voltage exposure resulting in electrocution
- Low voltage exposure resulting in electrical shock
- Burns from exposure to live wires
- Possible trauma from falls
