First Aid & Trauma

Emergency First Responder

  • Primary Care – This course teaches you steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, maybe in shock or who may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.
  • Secondary Care – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services may sometimes be delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to alleviate pain and reduce the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.
  • Care for Children – This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills specific to helping infants and children with medical emergencies. It’s designed for those who work with children or are likely to have to respond to emergencies involving youngsters. This course is often integrated with Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses.
  • CPR & AED – This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets the need. This course is often integrated into First Aid at Work programs.

Tactical Emergency Casualty Care

OTHER SOLUTIONS is an accredited educative partner of the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (C-TECC) 

The TECC program is based on the guidelines from the Committee on Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (Co-TECC). TECC uses lessons learned from the military and applies them to emergency first response.

Topics include:

  • Haemorrhage control
  • Surgical airway control
  • Needle decompression
  • Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments
  • Caring for patients
  • Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety.

The TECC program takes participants through three distinct, tried and tested phases:

  • Direct Threat Care: Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions.
  • Indirect Threat Care: Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed but may resurface at any point.
  • Evacuation. Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site.

Our regular course is 2 days and can take place in your office or any other suitable location.

Training

Our approach

Whether through their security or development backgrounds, and sometimes both, OSC’s team has substantive experience working in degraded security environments. The vast majority of our trainers have endured and have had to manage security incidents. This has infused our approach to security and is at the heart of all of our trainings.

We believe that:

► Each incident is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to security, only good practice.
► Insecurities are best approached through preparedness.
► Preparing against threats works best when knowing yourself.
► Trainings should empower people.
