I’m writing in regard to the CPR training that I received by Michelle. I was lucky enough to attend CPR training through my company. Even though CPR and First aid Training is compulsory at our workplace with senior staff they also open it up to other workers who want to attend. In my case I didn’t expect what was going to unfold over the next 24hrs!

I was driving down the road and saw my older kids in the pool with the pool scoop. I proceed to walkover to see what was going on and discovered my son floating just under the surface of the water. I immediately pulled him out and saw that he was foaming at the mouth and going blue in the face. Without thinking I applied CPR training that I had received from Michelle and managed to get him breathing again. When the ambulance arrived they took my son to the hospital where he received treatment overnight. The pool is certified by a qualified inspector and I’ve always ensured that pool safety is no.1 but I never expected something like this to ever happen to our family.

I was thankful that my company allowed me to learn CPR and that Michelle provided me with the necessary skills to help revive my son back.

I highly recommend Life International Training to any organisation as you never expect when you will need to use it.

Kind Regards

Manual Handling Forseeable Hazards

Employers have obligations under the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 to identify any foreseeable hazards that may arise in the workplace and to assess the risk of harm arising from the identified hazards. Employers then have an obligation to eliminate the hazards. If this is not "reasonably practicable" they must control the risks by implementing measures to lessen the risk of harm to the lowest possible level.

Manual Handling-Risk assessment

Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 require employers to carry out and implement Risk Assessment and Risk Management strategies for workplaces. Risk management is the logical and systematic approach to identifying, assessing, controlling and reviewing the risks associated with any activity, function or process, in a way that will enable organisations to minimise losses associated with workplace injury whilst maximising injury prevention opportunities.
