Covid-19 Protocols As Directed

COVID-19 protocols and regulatory compliances are strictly observed and included in the training methodology and outcomes.



First Aid Level 1 training is a legal requirement in the workplace linked to the number of staff as compelled by relevant Occupational Health and Safety legislation which prescribes that ‘an employer shall take all reasonable steps that are necessary under the circumstances, to ensure that persons at work receive prompt first aid treatment in case of injury or emergency.’ First Aid Level 2 is recommended for advanced techniques in cases of more serious incidences requiring first-responder interventions until the medical emergency professionals arrive.

Training Methodology and Philosophy

A foundation of mentorship, raising awareness, respect and vigilance for health, safety, security and protection of spaces and places where people live, work, meet and gather.

Latest Remote-Work-From-Home & COVID-19 Directives Impacting Employees Safety

It is highly recommended that employers ensure that all staff who work off – site are trained in first-responder  eg. First Aid & Fire-Fighting Level 1 as a minimum, in case of an injury ‘on duty’ in the absence of ‘traditional, on-site first responders’ when medical emergencies arise out of office.  This recommendation is supported by the ILO’s ‘An employers’ guide on working from home in response to the outbreak of COVID-19′ (for quick reference to health and safety for remote workers, refer to page 19,20 and 21 ).

Target Market

Besides first responders in the workplace, the course is also highly recommended as part of a H&S career-choice and entrepreneurship model for unemployed youth, women, community volunteer-NGO workers and anyone interested in health, safety, and saving lives.
