Dangerous occupations require strategies that limit the potential for accidents and emergencies. The Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) is an ideal candidate for improved safety with the addition of first aid and CPR skills. Fortunately, industry standards have improved and first aid qualifications are now an essential component of ESI procedures for minimising risks and responding to emergency situations. Provide First Aid in an ESI Environment (UETTDRRF10B) as delivered by talented Real First Aid course instructors, is making a genuine difference in the Electricity Supply Industry in Sydney, and employers couldn’t be happier.
What does the Provide First Aid course include?
It’s important for ESI workers to ensure hazards and risks are mitigated wherever possible. They understand that electric shock can be deadly, and appreciate working with colleagues who can respond whenever low-frequency, high-risk emergencies occur. Real First Aid takes training to the next level with specialised ESI training delivered on-site for better occupational health and safety outcomes. Provide First Aid in an ESI Environment (UETTDRRF10B) in Sydney is tailored specifically for ESI workers, while the attainments are equally valuable for use at home or anywhere else a fast emergency response is required.
Course participants develop risk and hazard minimisation strategies for creation of a safer environment. Skills include the ability to safely access an emergency zone, approach and remove a casualty from danger, communicate with helpers, and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Our enhanced simulation based training methods provide the difference between theory and practice by placing students in emergency situations that accurately mimic reality. Provide First Aid in an ESI Environment, as delivered by Real First Aid, includes:
- Accessing the emergency situation and identifying hazards
- Communication with emergency services as a vital link in the life saving chain
- Safely removing an unconscious cardiac arrest victim from a dangerous environment
- Performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and other life-saving procedures
- Documenting the accident, injury and response according to workplace protocol
Is this the only electricity supply industry first aid course?
Provide First Aid in an ESI Environment (UETTDRR10B) is specially tailored by Real First Aid to deliver the best workplace outcomes. However, first aid training is progressive, resulting in a superior knowledge and skills set with every attainment. Trained first aiders are all pervasive in modern society where health and safety issues are prominent, and the attainments are equally useful for all Australians. The large industrial, commercial and community developments in Sydney are all made safer when emergency response assistance is close at hand, so Real First Aid delivers important training courses including:
- Provide CPR (HLTAID001)
- Provide First Aid (HLTAID003)
- Provide Advanced First Aid (HLTAID006)

Our Real First Aid instructors and simulation experts come from paramedic, nursing, military and fire fighting backgrounds, so our courses have expanded to meet demand. Other Real First Aid courses include Tactical First Aid, Remote First Aid, Fire Warden Training and Childcare First Aid, also known as Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education & Care Setting. We leave no stone unturned to ensure all Australians have access to training specifically tailored for their interests and industry applications.
