Corporate First Aid Package
St John’s corporate First Aid package ensures that your worksite is equipped with the first aid supplies, registrations and staff training to assist a sick or injured person. The package is available through St John Medical Services and includes:
First Aid Training
Since 1892, St John has been delivering first aid services to the WA community. We are the state’s largest first aid training provider and offer a range of nationally accredited and non-accredited courses to meet industry and individual needs. In 2014/15 our College of Pre-Hospital Care (Registered Training Organisation ID #0392) trained over 245,000 individuals.
As a St John Medical Services client, our staff can provide training on-site. This makes it easy for your team to gain or maintain their first aid qualifications without leaving the workplace.
First Aid Kits, Supplies and Re-stocking
The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 1996 require an employer to provide adequate first aid facilities. This includes first aid kits which should be clearly marked and the contents maintained and replaced as necessary.
St John provides a wide range of workplace first aid kits and our on-site re-stocking service will replenish the kits on a regular basis and affix compliance stickers at each visit.
Defibrillators are an essential part of any first aid strategy. In the case of a sudden cardiac arrest, the optimal time to commence CPR and apply a defibrillator is in the first 3 minutes. Research shows that the chance of survival decreases by 10% each minute without the use of a defibrillator, therefore it is vital that there is one close by.
Community First Responder registration
Defibrillators in the workplace should be registered with St John. This enables the St John State Operations Centre who take all the triple zero emergency ambulance calls, to direct first responders, to the location of a defibrillator in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest.
State Operations Centre registration
If your worksite is in a remote location or the entry points are unlikely to be recorded on common navigational systems, then you should register your location with St John. This enables the St John State Operations Centre who take all the triple zero emergency ambulance calls, to more quickly and accurately dispatch medical assistance to your area.
