To celebrate the contribution business, government and community organisations and their trained First Aid team members to workplace safety, Australian First Aid in association with APL Healthcare and Emergency Dynamics is establishing the annual ‘Australian First Aid Awards’. These awards will recognise outstanding first aid and resuscitation outcomes, either achieved or attempted by trained first aiders.
This unique award system will also recognise the invaluable contribution of employers who strive to achieve a safer workplace through the provision of quality first aid facilities and training for their staff.
Recognition of First Aiders
We believe the commitment, courage and excellence demonstrated by first aiders in the saving of a life, or attending to challenging medical conditions and injuries of others should be recognised and rewarded beyond the obvious gratitude of the person who received the emergency care and their family. These awards will honour the outstanding efforts of first aiders who apply first aid in difficult circumstances.
Recognition of Employers
We also believe that employers should receive formal recognition for their investment and the contribution made to the safety of their employees, clients and other visitors to their workplace. These awards will honour employers who set an exemplary standard in providing for first aid in their workplace.
