PIAA launches first aid training for 2011

Ian Walz national manager, learning and development at Printing Industries said the timing was chosen to coincide with the return to full staffing of businesses after the holiday period and any New Year engagement of employees.

He says, “Most businesses are back to full staff capacity and so it’s important to take the opportunity at this time of year to get the relevant staff trained up before key busy periods.

“We are repeating the intense single-day course piloted in October last year as opposed to a two-day format. The single day proved very successful and minimised time away from the workplace.”

Walz said the course covers a wide range of topics including cardio pulmonary Resuscitation, fractures and dislocations, burns and scalds as well as head, chest and spinal injuries.

He continues, “Our presenter is experienced with the printing industry, so the content and situation discussions are geared around the circumstances you would find in a printing company.

“The course is nationally accredited and on successful completion of the training, participants receive an attendance sheet outlining the course outcomes achieved.”
