A nationally accredited one-day first aid course for the printing industry will be staged in Sydney on 26 October.

Printing Industries national manager, learning and development, Ian Walz, said the course was in response to requests from members for nationally accredited and certified training.

“We are now offering the Apply First Aid Course which is a tailored program that highlights the common hazards people can encounter in the printing industry,” he said.

“The one-day practical and assessment program is designed to best use time away from the workplace.

“On successful completion of the training, participants receive an attendance sheet outlining the course outcomes achieved.

“They also receive a nationally accredited First Aid Certificate, a wallet-sized plastic First Aid card and a 255-page full-colour First Aid Manual.”

Walz said the course was suitable for any employee to undertake and did not require a prior knowledge of first aid.

“Occupational health and safety laws in NSW encourage employers to have first aid trained staff as part of their responsibility to be able to respond to workplace incidents. This course is an ideal way to help meet this responsibility,” he said.

“Employers, regardless of what size company they have, are responsible for anything that goes wrong in the workplace that could have been mitigated by having trained employees.

“They are also required to have first aid facilities that are adequate for the immediate treatment of injuries and illnesses that may arise at the place of work.”

Walz said the course, only available to Printing Industries members, would be run at the Auburn office from 9am-5pm with morning tea, a light lunch and refreshments inclusive in the $160 registration fee.
