Provide First Aid

Provide First Aid

(1 day course with assignment)

Unit Codes:

  • HLTAID003 Provide first aid
  • HLTAID002 Provide basic emergency life support
  • HLTAID001 Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation

WHO should complete first aid training?

Section 21 of the Victorian OHS Act 2004 states that, an employer must provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the employer’s management and control.

WorkSafe Victoria’s Guide to Workplace Amenities and First Aid states, “The number of first aiders and training needs will vary between workplaces. As a general rule, persons designated as first aid officers will need to have undertaken training leading to a Senior First Aid certificate (Level 2 certificate).”

Additional Entry Requirements:

  • Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years of age
  • Applicants must satisfy the Language, Literacy and Numeracy requirements as outlined below
  • Applicants who are currently employed or who have recent work experience are preferred but not mandatory

WHY do you need first aid training?

The Law:
The law requires employers to provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, a safe working environment and adequate facilities for the welfare of their employees. Section 21(2)(d) of the OHS Act 2004 (Vic.) requires that, in meeting their duty under section 21(1), an employer must provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the employer’s management and control.

This needs to include having appropriate first aid measures in place, including first aid kits and suitably trained first aid officers.

Australian Resuscitation Council:
All those trained in CPR should refresh their CPR skills at least annually. (ARC – Guideline 10.1 (March 2013).

Industry standards
Industry standards are universal with regard to first aid and CPR refresher training.

A first aid course remains current for 3 years, whereas CPR is required to be completed annually
