Workplace injuries are more common than you might think. According to SafeWork Australia, there were 107,355 serious compensation claims for worker injury from 2014-2015 alone.
The safety of your employees should always be your number one concern. It’s not just a legislative responsibility, it’s a moral one.
The most basic way to ensure this safety is by training your team in First Aid. Initial contact with an injured person is of critical importance. When your team is equipped with the necessary skills to provide effective assistance in these scenarios it can be the difference between life and death.
