First Aid – Alsco Managed Training Services – Importance Of First Aid Training -yuanjiao

Business Being on the spot and responding quickly and effectively when faced with an emergency situation at work such as heart attacks, choking, drowning or electrocution makes First Aiders the heroes of the hour. For the accident victim, having someone nearby who is expertly trained to administer basic first aid is not only a legal requirement for businesses of all kinds and sizes, it also makes good .munity and .mercial sense. Accidents happen, and having trained staff on hand and a first aid kit (or disaster preparedness kit) means enhanced safety for all. The history of first aid probably started with the 11th century Knights Hospitaller, who provided care to pilgrims and knights and later began to train other knights to treat .mon battlefield injuries. More recently, in 1863, four nations met in Geneva and formed the organisation that became the Red Cross, which aimed to aid sick and wounded soldiers in the field. Not long after, in 1877, St John Ambulance was formed to teach first aid treatment and by 1878, UK civilian ambulance services had created first aid – a .bination of first treatment and national aid – in large railway centres and mining districts as well as in police forces. From there, first aid never looked back, with todays generation of managed first aid training providers including alscotraining…au delivering corporate training programs and kits that equip employees in all industries to save lives every day. Today, the skills go far beyond the basic ABCs of first aid – Airway, Breathing and Circulation, where First Aiders first ensure the victims airway is clear, then that the person is able to breathe and if not, they provide rescue breathing, applying chest .pressions (and thus providing artificial circulation). Once the ABCs are secured, First Aiders then can begin additional treatments as required, depending on the accident or illness. Todays First Aider is likely to be trained in dealing with injuries until the next stage of definitive care (usually an ambulance with paramedics on board) arrives. First Aider training is generally provided by attending a course, typically leading to certification. Due to regular changes in procedures and protocols-based updated clinical knowledge as well as to maintain skills – attendance at regular refresher courses or re-certification often is necessary. In Australia, nationally-recognised First Aid certificates can only be issued by registered training organisations (RTOs) such as alscotraining, which is accredited on the National Training Information System (NTIS).
