PUA Emergency Care

Project scope

This project will review and update five Units of Competency in response to changes in industry practice, health regulatory requirements and the current COVID-19 pandemic.

 

This area of public safety refers to the provision of emergency care by public safety personnel, pending the arrival of appropriately qualified personnel. It includes identifying need for emergency care, managing injuries, ensuring personal safety of the carer and casualty, assessing the casualty, implementing emergency care procedures, and working cooperatively with personnel from other organisations.

 

The units will be reviewed to ensure alignment with changed industry guidelines and terminology to ensure they meet safety and industry skill requirements.

 

This includes changes to Australian and New Zealand Resuscitation Council (ANZCOR) and Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines. Given the current COVID 19 pandemic, the units will also be updated in line with community safety regulations and changing community expectations. These skills are essential to building the capability of public safety workers.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Public Safety Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders.  The IRC and AIS is working with subject matter experts in the development of the Training Package materials.

 

Timeline

 

The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 31 August 2022.
