1. Accident Initial Response & Assistance

Overview  

The way you respond to an accident sustained by someone else can not only reduce the severity of an injury – it can also save their life. It’s therefore absolutely vital to put in place policies and procedures so that accidents can be dealt with as fast and effectively as possible.

In this course, you will begin by looking at first aid equipment, facilities and training required. You will then look at a number of different scenarios involving accidents and injuries, and how you should respond to each of these.

Topics Covered:

• First aid kits, first aiders and first aid plans
• Electric shocks
• Chemical burns
• Heat exhaustion and dehydration
• Amputation and external bleeding
• Injuries and falls
• Snake bites

Duration

1 hour.

Who should attend

Any individual that wishes to understand accidents and injuries, and how you should respond to each of these.

2. Manual Handling and Ergonomics for the Office

Overview  

When working in an office it’s easy to assume you are exempt from the considerable dangers present in work environments such as construction sites or warehouses. Don’t be fooled – by doing simple tasks such as typing at a desk or lifting files onto a shelf, you are putting your physical health at risk if these tasks are not undertaken with the correct ergonomic and manual handling principles.

So what’s the big deal and why should you do this course? The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated in 2007 that one third of all reported occupational injuries were sprains or strains of joints and adjacent muscles, resulting from manual handling or poor ergonomic practices. This is encountered in many areas of the office environment and such injuries can be disabling and costly.

Manual Handling and Ergonomics for the Office course will teach you how to properly identify, plan and perform manual handling tasks to help make sure your workplace remains safe and injury-free.

Topics covered:

  • Ergonomic hazards in the workplace
  • What is manual handling?
  • Risk and consequences of manual handling
  • Legal requirements and responsibilities
  • Assessing manual handling tasks and minimising risk
  • Proper lifting technique.

Duration

1 hour.

In the workplace we must contend with a multitude of distractions, from unexpected assignments, to prolonged phone calls, to the temptations of social media.

  • Setting priorities and outcomes for your workplace tasks
  • Identifying and overcoming procrastination
