At a recent meeting of the Paramedic Safety Management Committee it was reported that the refresher round of the SAFE training is rolling out across LASNs. This committee is an ongoing body monitoring enhancements as part of the Safety Taskforce into occupational violence faced by Ambulance Staff.
This ongoing training is an important initiative which United Voice Paramedic representatives Liesel Cahalan and John Urquhart were part of as a team pulling together the content for this refresher course. It’s this input and feedback from on road officers which really helps to ensure these measures are effective and go some way to preventing incidents occurring which impact on ambulance officers’ workplace health and safety. Thanks Liesel and John for your hard work on this issue.
