First Aid at car Crashes

January 9th, 2020

First Aid Training will be able to help you work through certain scenarios especially at car crashes. Is it time to get trained? Have you thought about attending a first aid training course to update your certification?

Simple Instruction is taking bookings online through our fast and easy Allens Training new platform Training Desk www.simpleinstruction.com.au for both HLTAID003 Provide First Aid (formerly known as Senior first aid and Apply First Aid) and HLTAID001 Provide CPR. All courses are conducted at the Dee Why RSL on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

A Tasmania Police officer has revealed a common mistake people make when responding to the scene of a crash.

Divisional Acting Sergeant Ann Edge, from Southern Road Public Order Services, explained to Yahoo News Australia what you should do if you happen to come across an accident.

Should I stop for a road accident?

Sgt Edge said you should stop at the scene of an accident if you feel up to it, and it’s safe to do so.

“If you feel confident, then stop,” she said.

“But make sure you ask yourself: ‘is it safe?’”

‘Scan your surroundings’

You need to ensure you check your environment before and after you pull over.

“Are there fallen trees or power lines near the crash scene? Is the car down an embankment you can’t reach?” Sgt Edge said.

“Scan your surroundings as your safety is paramount.”

Also make sure you’re not stopped on the road. This is especially important on highways where vehicles are travelling much faster.

Pull over your vehicle to a point where it’s not obstructing traffic and you can safely step out.

Turn the hazard lights on.

When asked if Sgt Edge had ever experienced anyone being hit by a car responding to a crash she said “no” but she had “heard of it”.

NSW Roads and Maritime Services also advises if a vehicle is on fire to try and turn the ignition off.

What should I do after I have stopped at the crash scene?

You should call triple-0 after stopping at the scene.

“They’ll put you through to police, fire or ambulance,” Sgt Edge said.

“You’ll need to tell them where you are – what street you’re on.”

If you’re stopped in a rural area, you might need to point out a landmark.

This can be a restaurant, a sign or some kind of building – anything which gives emergency services an idea of where the scene is.

“The operator will then ask lots of questions,” Sgt Edge said.

“But they give good advice and can be a calming influence.”

If you have decided to check on the person at the scene, they may ask you questions about them too and provide instructions.

“They might ask you if they’re conscious or not, and tell you whether that person should be moved,” Sgt Edge said.

“They’ll also offer reassurance – they might tell you ‘police are 15 minutes away’ or someone’s not far off from helping.”

Can I get in trouble for helping someone at a crash?

Most traffic crashes, at least ones reported to police, can come under investigation from authorities. They may want to investigate how the crash was caused or if the driver was distracted on the road.

Sometimes it can lead to a criminal investigation.

People might be concerned about reprisal from police for getting involved, however Sgt Edge said no one should be worried about trying to help someone.

“Let’s say someone comes across a car seeing smoke coming out and fearing it might explode,” she said.

“Where someone is acting in good faith to provide assistance they won’t be criticised by police.”

The ‘only’ mistake people make when stopping at the crash

There’s a common mistake people make when pulling over at the scene of a crash.

“The only mistake people make is trying to stop or move traffic,” Sgt Edge said.

“Police are trained to move traffic as are firefighters.

“We also tend to set up further back with our lights on – that way people who are heading in the direction of the scene think, ‘I might need to slow down’.”

Sgt Edge said the other issue people might not have considered is lighting.

“At night, it can be really hard to see people in dark clothes on the road,” she said.

“Police officers have high-vis too. It makes us easier to see at night on dark roads.”

Managing traffic should be left to police or firefighters.

‘Don’t beat yourself up’

Not everyone is an action hero.

If you don’t feel like you can help someone out of a car wreck or at the scene of an accident you shouldn’t feel guilty about it.

“People shouldn’t beat themselves up for not helping if they don’t feel up to it,” Sgt Edge said.

“It can be very daunting to get out of the car and go check for signs of life.”

However, if you would like to be prepared for an accident or any kind of emergency, Sgt Edge advised learning CPR or first aid.

You can sign up to learn first aid and other skills through Red Cross.

Sgt Edge added anyone who’s been involved in an accident, witnessed one or provided assistance has access to free counselling.

In Tasmania, it’s known as Road Trauma Support Tasmania.

Victoria also offers its own counselling services for traffic crashes as does South Australia.

NSW also offers a variety of counselling options.

Northern Beaches Council – Pool safety and first aid recommendations

October 27th, 2019

Safety on the Northern Beaches is crucial not just on our beaches but also around the home. The Northern Beaches council has strict guidelines for pool safety and recommends first aid and CPR training be current and charts hung for those around water.

Original article published – https://www.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au/community/safety-and-wellbeing/pool-safety

Home drowning deaths occur year around and it’s every pool owner’s responsibility to make sure pools are safe. Here you’ll find essential information about new swimming pool laws, safety requirements and pool registration. Don’t take chances in and around the pool.

Swimming Pool Registration

Pool and spa owners need to register their pools on the NSW Government online register(Opens in a new window) to avoid fines.

Your pool or spa must comply with all pool safety legal requirements.  You need a Swimming Pool Compliance Certificate to be able to sell or lease your property. Application Form(Opens in a new window)

What if My Pool Doesn’t Meet Standards?

If your pool fails to meet compliance, Council will let you know the work required to gain certification. You’ll be given a certificate of non-compliance which should be provided to your solicitor or conveyancer if you’re selling your property.

Swimming Pool Barriers

Registered compliant pools or spas need a barrier at least 1.2m high with no gaps more than 10cm underneath.

Gates must open outwards and be self-closing and self-latching. Gate latches must be 1.5m above ground level or have a shield.

Boundary fences forming part of the pool barrier must be 1.8 metres high.

Pool Fences are Important

Backyard pool drownings due to faulty pool fencing can be avoided. Keep pool fencing clear and well maintained. Anything potentially climbable, that might serve as a foothold, must be kept at least 900mm clear of fences and gates. Spas not enclosed by a pool barrier must be covered by a child-resistant lockable lid.

Swimming Pool Barrier Inspection Program

Northern Beaches Council has established an inspection program as required under Section 22B of the Swimming Pools Act 1992. The program sets out inspection priorities, fee payment arrangements and the approach to be taken to ensure compliance. 

Council Inspections

Council proactively inspects backyard pools for safety compliance. Find out more about Council’s Barrier Inspection Program(Opens in a new window). Or make use of these checklists(Opens in a new window).

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is life-saving first aid(Opens in a new window) and an essential skill for backyard pool owners.

CPR resuscitation chart(Opens in a new window) must be displayed within the pool or Spa area.

CPR is a combination of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions delivering oxygen and artificial blood circulation to anyone in cardiac arrest.

Public Swimming Pools

Northern Beaches Council has an effective program of registering and inspecting all public swimming pools and spas. This ensures public health standards of cleanliness and safety are maintained.

This program covers, club, workplace, accommodation guest, school and hospital pools. Under Public Health Regulation 2012, pools posing a public health risk can be closed.

Find more detailed information on pool and spa safety regulations on the NSW Government Fair Trading Website(Opens in a new window).
