First Aid Course

First Aid Course

Australian mining news

Safety is a huge issue in the mines!

Make sure you’re well prepared to cope with emergency first-aid situations.

Not just underground or at mining work sites but in the camps and mining areas, safety and first aid skills are highly valued by mining employers and are often essential before stepping foot on a mining camp or mine site.

If an accident happened whilst you are operating mining equipment would you know what to do in those vital first few minutes?

One thing people say about accidents is that they happen quickly.

When they do, will you be ready to help your family, friends and workmates?

Simple things can help save lives, however, you need to have those skills before the incident, in order to help when you`re needed.

By completing a first aid training course you are gaining the skills that mining companies value and that you’ll need if you find yourself in that moment of crisis.

Typically course covers nationally recognised units of competency to help you along your mining pathway. The course units below are to be used a guide only. Consult your local service provider for more details.


Annual refreshers are recommended to maintain current CPR skills.

Re- certification:  valid for 3 years

Ask yourself…

  1. Are you mine ready?
  2. Are you people ready?
  3. Can you help the team in a first aid situation?
