CPR – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
Without oxygen being passed from the lungs to the blood stream and then pumped around the body by the heart a person will die.
When a person suffers cardiac arrest their heart stops beating, they lose consciousness, they stop breathing, and blood will not circulate. Unless they receive prompt first aid attention until medical help arrives they will suffer irreparable brain damage and die within minutes.
This program looks at the technique for performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on adults, in accordance with the current resuscitation guidelines.
The program covers:
- Basic Life Support (BLS) procedure
- How to conduct CPR on an adult casualty
- How to deliver Rescue Breaths
- How to deliver chest compressions
- How to use a Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
- CPR with two rescuers
- Rescuer health and hygiene
The program is suitable for use in any workplace and has been designed specifically as a refresher course and training aid for people who have already been or are being trained in CPR.

Most workplaces are literally surrounded by a maze of electrical circuits. Cables, conduits and extension cords deliver electricity to plant, equipment appliances and lights.
The vast majority of people know very little about electricity and this lack of knowledge makes it very difficult for people to recognise potential hazards. Without a basic understanding of how electricity behaves and what effects electricity can have on the human body, it is very difficult to understand what we as individuals can or should do, to reduce the risks associated with specific electrical hazards.
This program contains the following information:
Basic facts – definitions and explanations of basic electrical terms.
Basic rules – states and explains the three basic rules that apply to electricity.
Rule #1 – Electricity will only travel in a circuit.
Rule #2 – Electricity will always travel in the path of least
Rule #3 – Electricity will always try to travel to the ground.
Effects of Current on the Human Body – explains what effects
different current levels will have on the body. Also explains
how the resistance offered by the human body can vary under
Common Hazards – this section looks at the most common
hazards found in the workplace, including overhead power
lines and the use of extension cords.
Hazard Control – this section identifies human error as the
number one cause of electrical accidents in the workplace.
The section also covers the most common ‘do’s and don’ts’
that apply to electrical safety and finishes with information
on the wearing of appropriate personal protective equipment.
Electricity is a convenient, cost effective and surprisingly safe source of energy in every workplace. We should however not become complacent about the potential hazards associated with electricity. Even though there are relatively few accidents associated with electricity, many of the accidents that do happen have serious or devastating results.

Cuts and Bleeding
There are numerous injuries that can occur in the workplace and amongst the most common are Cuts and Bleeding. These can range from small scratches through to serious cuts, embedded objects, amputations and injuries that can lead to internal bleeding.
Many bleeding incidents are not severe and can be treated with simple first-aid and the body’s own ability to clot. Some are more serious and require urgent action. Serious bleeding that is not stopped quickly is life threatening.
This program covers:
- The Composition of Blood
- A Definition of Blood Vessels
- The Effects of Bleeding on the Body
- External Bleeding
- The Treatment of Minor Wounds
- The Treatment of Major Wounds
- Internal Bleeding
The objective of this program is to highlight the major hazard areas associated with Cuts and Bleeding and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.
