North Lakes First Aid Training Centre
We can all admit to having attended training courses that are long, boring, where much of the info delivered seems irrelevant. Some of us might think that this is the norm. But why should it be? Here at Fluid First Aid, we believe that learning can be one of the most enriching activities that you can do.
The Most Effective First Aid Course in North Lakes
We see training courses as opportunities to grow and become empowered with knowledge, and we have built our company on this foundation. We aim to make first aid training fun and accessible for everyone and provide nationally recognised first aid courses in North Lakes, Eagle Farm and Springfield Lakes.
Why do first aid training?
Although many people will have learned some first aid through their education, it is important to refresh this as an adult. Knowledge of first aid procedures and the correct methods of administering medical assistance are vital for you as an individual, as well as for your community. First aid can be applied anywhere and, in some circumstances; it may mean the difference between life and death until further help arrives.
For organisations, provision of trained first aiders as well as first aid equipment and facilities are a legal requirement. As a general rule of thumb, there should be one first aider for every 50 workers in a low-risk environment, such as an office, and one first aider for every 25 workers in a high-risk environment, such as a construction site.
Whether the workplace is high or low risk, we believe it shares two traits: valuable employees who may suffer from illness or injury, and the need to protect them with suitable first aid procedures.
