  • July 7, 2015 /

uettdrrf10b - Provide First Aid In An Esi Environment

This unit is designed to provide participants with the additional skills required to deal with an emergency situation in an ESI environment and to be able to identify the additional risks associated with this environment.

To meet these needs the course includes assessing risks and hazards to both the participant and the casualty and the affects electricity may have on a casualty and the rescuer.

This unit contributes towards a Certificate II level qualification.

People seeking work in the arboriculture industry, or to become involved in vegetation control activities associated with the electrical supply networks, may be assisted in their efforts to obtain work in these industries by the completion of this course.

The Electricity Supply Industry requires this qualification for any participant that works in close proximity to live electrical parts.

Benefits to Business:

Electrical supply network owners require that work undertaken in proximity to their assets is performed by people who are suitably qualified. This unit of competency meets part of that expectation.

The unit will provide participants with the skills to effectively deal with an emergency situation in the workplace that may require administering effective use of first aid skills, coupled with possibly CPR, and it meets the duty of care required when participants are required to work in close proximity to live electrical parts.

This unit may be completed concurrently with HLTAID001 (Provide CPR).

Upon completion of this unit, the student should be able to:
• Recognise an emergency situation and act to minimise immediate hazards to themselves and others
• Assess the situation and recognise the need for additional care
• Understand the DRSABCD principal
• Undertake emergency care of a casualty
• Be respectful and recognise the need for accurate confidential records and reporting requirements that meet legislative and organisational needs.
