This course is primarily aimed at individuals within the healthcare industry, exposed to day to day activities which involve some kind of manual handling, some more hazardous than others. Working in the healthcare sector, you may also be confronted by a life-threatening emergency such as someone experiencing Cardiac Arrest. Quick decision making and knowledge on what to do could save someone’s life. This course provides a combination of skills and knowledge required to undertake manual tasks safely and to recognise when someone is unconscious and not breathing normally (Cardiac Arrest) and increase their chance of survival by calling an ambulance and performing potentially lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), including using a defibrillator, until emergency services arrive to take over.
The training in this course allows you to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence required to firstly recognise potentially hazardous manual tasks and the sources of risks and risk factors. Then prepare for and apply controls to complete these tasks using manual handling techniques which support safe work practice. You will also learn about the function of the body in movement and performing manual tasks, the importance of posture and positioning of the body, and how to recognise symptoms of an injury and report it.
The skills in this course are applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian/New Zealand standards and industry codes of practice such as the Hazardous manual tasks code of practice applies. This course is also delivered in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines and applies to all workers or members of the community who may be required to provide CPR in the event of an emergency.
The delivery mode for this course is a combination of online learning, followed by face-to-face assessment. The online component takes approximately 4 hours and the face-to-face assessment 6 hours. Please note that all of the online learning must be completed prior to the face to face practical assessment.
