GRAMS employees undertake essential first aid training

Published on Thursday, 20 April 2023 at 12:07:14 PM

We're excited to announce that our staff is currently in the process of completing their yearly first aid training! We recently introduced mandatory yearly first aid training for all our employees.

More than 80 staff are currently undertaking training with St Johns WA to complete three courses which includes:

  • HLTAID009- Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation
  • HLTAID010-Provide basic emergency life support
  • HLTAID011- Provide First Aid

The staff split into groups of 20 to complete the training which includes online learning and practical training components. Once employees have successfully completed the training a certificate is issued and emailed to Human Resources. 

During the practical session, staff are required to pair up and practiced using bandages and splints to tie each other up, simulating emergency situations such as an asthma attack, snake bite, and anaphylaxis. Additionally, they had to perform the correct procedure for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on manikins, including infants under 12 months old and adults.

“I was a fun day that was very informative. Staff really bonded completing the practical activities in this important training”, GRAMS Immunisation Practitioner Paula Wynne.

We hope to never have to use these skills, but it's always better to be prepared in case of an emergency. Well done to our staff for their dedication and hard work in completing the training!
