First aid training – road accident rescue

Medical care and preventionFirst aid training – road accident rescue

For many employers, employee safety is the key issue in terms of healthcare. For years, Medicover has been taking part in initiatives promoting health prevention programmes and projects that increase safety of life and health. Since its inception in 2005, the Medicover Academy of Emergency Rescue Services has been working closely with the Polish Resuscitation Council (PRR), the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and the American Heart Association (AHA). In 2013, Medicover became an authorised AHA Training Centre in Poland.

During our courses, we try to provide participants with the most valuable skills: unique knowledge and the ability to save another person’s life in case of emergency.

In 2018, there were 31,674 road accidents on public roads, in residential or traffic zones reported to the Police.

Every day, we are at risk of accidents and injuries that, if not properly handled, can pose a health risk, can leave a permanent mark or even cause death. Mobile employees who travel by car are at risk of road traffic accidents, not only as road users, but also as witnesses to accidents in which aid must be provided.

Who is the target group of the first aid in road accidents training?

The right answer is: everyone.

Employees from all industries who are road users are at risk of being involved in a traffic accident when it will be necessary to assist the injured. Some people from specific occupational groups spend more time in cars than others, namely mobile employees and those working in sales and customer service. The long distances they cover when working for transport and logistics companies or when selling and servicing products from various industries also put them at risk. Therefore, it is so important to properly prepare road users to provide first aid in the case of a road accident.

What will training participants learn?

Our trainers are people with charisma and extensive experience. This makes it easy for participants to assimilate knowledge. During one-hour online training, participants will be able to learn about a number of issues related to the provision of first aid during a traffic accident, such as:

  • Dealing with a traffic accident,
  • Site assessment,
  • Security of the accident site, own safety,
  • Assessment of the injured person,
  • Practical use of the first aid kit,
  • Right methods of calling for assistance, emergency phone numbers,
  • Discussion of typical injuries and how to dress them,
  • Right removal of a person from a car,
  • Helmet removal technique,
  • Assessment and treatment of the unconscious,
  • CPR in the road environment.

Due to the unstable epidemiological situation, training courses are provided online. Thanks to simple and modern tools, it is possible to organise training courses for teams working on a remote basis or in a distributed structure.

The training lasts about one hour, and consists of a theoretical and a practical part as well as a question and answer session. Trainers are extremely charismatic and very experienced in providing training courses. Therefore, the materials are engaging, and participants do not get bored, but effectively assimilate new knowledge.
