Become a First Aider

First aiders provide initial emergency treatment and life support for people suffering injury or illness.

First aiders are appointed by managers/supervisors in each area. If you would like to become a first aider, please discuss the opportunity with your manager/supervisor. First aiders must have recently completed training in order to listed as a first aider. Please also inform your building's chief warden, who may need to include your details on building emergency information posters.

The University of Melbourne offers support and procedures for employees regarding delivery of first aid. Familiarise yourself with emergency contacts, emergency guidance, and the locations of defibrillators.
