O’Brien Electrical is a leading electrical contractor in Carrum Downs providing a diverse range of domestic, industrial and commercial services. They ensure consistent national pricing, high service standards and highly skilled electricians.
The team required first aid training delivered on site and relevant to electrical work. Due to the nature of high risk electrical work they must respond efficiently and effectively if an injury occurs in their work place. The team are often working in pairs and sometimes in remote locations.
The team legally require Nationally recognised and valid First Aid Certificates to provide electrical services in certain worksites to be Worksafe compliant. Due to their commitment to the safety and wellbeing of their team, O’Brien Electrical requested all staff to be trained rather than just the minimum compliance requirements.

Typical first aid training can been seen as a dry and boring experience. Fiona’s passion for first aid and her ability to engage with participants from all walks of life, using real life examples and games makes it a great learning experience.

The knowledge and skills learnt are transferrable to everyday life. Fiona has several examples where participants have saved lives which makes this very rewarding and meaningful work for her.
