Overview

Do your personnel have the training and tools needed to save themselves, fellow first responders, or the public that have sustained traumatic life-threatening injuries?

SGC Safety has developed training in tactical first aid using the Stop The Bleed program that provides you with the skills needed to combat preventable causes of traumatic death. With this training we are putting the knowledge gained by professionals and the military into the hands of everyday people who can save lives in the first critical minutes.

Students learn to stop traumatic bleeding using the latest pressure bandages, arterial tourniquets, wound packing and haemostatic agents. Our training also provides students with skills in  rapid patient assessment, treatment of respiratory distress and the use of a vented chest seal and the management of hypothermia.

National Guidelines

The Australia and New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC) strategy for protecting crowded places states that owners and operators of crowded places – which includes businesses, major event organisers, sporting clubs, charities, community groups, religious groups, and local, state and territory and Commonwealth governments – have the primary responsibility for protecting their sites, including a duty of care to take steps to protect people that work, use or visit their site from a range of foreseeable threats, including the threat of terrorist attack. SGC Safety’s Stop The Bleed training is one way of helping you comply with these national guidelines.

Our tactical first aid training complies with the latest Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines including Bleeding Control by the use of direct pressure, arterial tourniquets and haemostatic dressings.
