As the Australian government unveils its new 10-year strategy to reduce workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses, leading first aid training provider , My First Aid Course, has emphasised the importance of first aid courses in promoting workplace safety.
“We welcome the government’s initiative to improve workplace safety across the country,” says Malcolm Thompson, Managing Director of My First Aid Course. “Workplace safety is paramount, and it’s essential that businesses take steps to prevent accidents from occurring. By providing effective first aid training, we can help businesses to tackle the severity and frequency of workplace accidents, and ultimately contribute to a safer working environment for all.”
The targets outlined in the government’s 10-year strategy include reducing workplace fatalities from traumatic injuries by at least 30%, reducing the frequency of serious claims resulting in one or more weeks off at work by at least 20%, reducing the frequency of permanent impairment by 15%, reducing the overall incidence of work-related injury or illness among workers to below 3.5%, achieving no new cases of accelerated silicosis by 2023, and reducing the frequency of work-related respiratory disease by 20%.
