This unit of competency involves the skills and knowledge required to manage injuries at an emergency which may include the use of equipment. It includes assessing the scene and the casualty, implementing emergency management procedures, moving the casualty, and completing required documentation.
The unit is applicable to all public safety personnel who are required to provide a basic level of ongoing injury management at an incident beyond critical live saving techniques. It is not designed for personnel whose primary response role is one of emergency care, first aid or pre-hospital care.
PUAEME001 – Provide emergency care
All learners must be able to read and comprehend English to a level that will enable them to safely perform duties as specified in the competency standard. PreStart Safety & Training recognises that some learners may require more support to meet the requirements of the training course. We will endeavour to meet these needs with regards to; language, literacy and numeracy skills. Learners are encouraged, prior to commencing the course and where applicable, to complete an PreStart Safety & Training LLN analysis, which will assist the Trainer/Assessor to interpret individual skill level and manage this from the onset. Learners must complete and return a pre-course assessment (as supplied by PreStart Safety & Training).
All successful applicants will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment: Manage injuries at emergency incident – PUAEME002.
