Manage First Aid in an Emergency

6400 Manage First Aid in an Emergency

Unit Standard 6400 teaches the trainees to manage first aid in an emergency situation. Training includes teaching of unit standards 6401 and 6402. However, WOHC does teach 6400, 6401 and 6402 to the full NZQA standard but credit is not available for our courses. If NZQA credit is required, please contact our Occupational Health Consultant to discuss further.

Topics covered include:

  • Bleeding
  • Shock
  • Recovery Position /Moving Patient
  • Chest Injuries
  • Head Injuries
  • Febrile Convulsions
  • CVA (Stroke)
  • Epilepsy
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Bone & Joint Injuries/ Crush Injuries
  • Wounds and Dressings
  • Bandaging
  • Neck & Spinal Injuries
  • Poisoning Insects & Allergic Reactions
  • Burns
  • Hyperventilation
  • Eye Injuries
  • Heat Stress/ Hypothermia

A very theoretical and practical unit standard that requires trainees to participate in role plays and scenarios set by the instructor; demonstrating their knowledge and skills to manage an emergency situation.

Initial training for this takes at least 12 hours (a day and a half), however refresher training (held every 2 years) can be carried out in one day (8 hour) course.
