First Aid Training Overview Just like any sector, construction and trades industry workers need to have minimum numbers of qualified first aiders, as stipulated by the SafeWork Australia First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice. Depending on their role and the nature of their workplace, staff may need to complete specialised training. St John offers courses specifically suited to the construction environment, including Low Voltage Rescue and Remote Area First Aid. All courses are available on-site for groups or as individual bookings. Untreated mental health conditions cost Australian workplaces approximately $10.9 billion per year. 1 This staggering figure highlights the prevalence of mental health conditions in society and the need to provide adequate support in the workplace. For every $1 that is invested in creating a mentally healthy workplace, there is a $2.30 positive Return on Investment (ROI). 2 Learn the skills to identify and assist colleagues who may be experiencing issues with their mental health by completing our Mental Health First Aid Course. 1 TNS 2014, State of Workplace Mental Health in Australia.
