The 'First to Respond' Workshop

St John

Spaces are limited to only 20 people. The course will be repeated if demand exceeds available places.

A customer or one of your staff needs urgent medical assistance; You are the first and possibly the only person there to respond. You've rung 111; The St John Ambulance is on its way.

Would you know what to do next?

What you do in the next 4 - 12 minutes before the St John Ambulance arrives could save that person's life.

St John has designed this two-hour workshop to up-skill staff. In two hours, your staff will be shown how to deal with the five most common situations that are likely to encounter in their workplace environment; it could be a cardiac arrest, a falling injury, or even a person cut and badly bleeding.

The aim of this workshop is to up-skill staff to compliment, or assist your fully trained first aiders

Content covered in the workshop:

* Adult CPR, (including a demonstration on an AED defibrillator unit)
* Managing an unconscious patient (who does not require CPR),
* Best positioning, airway management, environment such as warmth
* Managing a conscious patient, (who is feeling faint, having difficulty breathing, etc)
* Dealing with strains, fractures or broken bones due to a slip or fall
* Dealing with life threatening bleeding

Basic Life Support Workshop

St John

Spaces are limited to only 20 people. The course will be repeated if demand exceeds available places.

This course teaches you essential life-saving skills.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique that is used when someone's heart has stopped. Some medical conditions, such as a severe heart attack, can cause the heart to stop. Other causes include drowning, electric shock, poisoning, overdose and serious injury. For CPR to be successful, it needs to be started as soon as possible after a person's heart stops.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn CPR; it also covers management of choking, bleeding and shock and helps your workplace to meet health and safety standards. This course includes assessment and leads to an NZQA unit standard.

This 4¼ hour course is a mixture of theory and practice. On completion, you will:

Know when and how to apply CPR for an adult, child and baby
know what to do if someone is choking
Manage serious bleeding until medical help arrives
Gain NZQA unit standard 6402 (or by special arrangement 26551). The NZQA unit 6402 can earn you a certificate towards Health and Safety.
Content covered in the workshop:

Scene safety
Calling an ambulance
