The risk is real
Did you know that the construction industry has one of Queensland’s highest fatality and injury rates? According to WorkSafe Queensland, although fatalities have been on the decline since 2007, the State had 41 fatalities in 2019 – that’s nearly 25% of Australia’s workplace related injuries in Queensland alone. Of these 41 fatalities, 35 were attributed to construction, mining and other related jobs. Taking a closer look at fatalities by occupation, 8 were mobile plant and vehicle operators, 3 were managers, and 3 were labourers.
Safety on the job site is critical to ensuring tragedies like these don’t occur, but the risk is always there, so it is imperative that you know what must be done when accidents and emergencies happen. Dawsons Training can provide you with the theory, practical skills and confidence to take care of yourself and your mates when they do.
Dawsons Training has you covered
Do you work in, or are you looking for work in, the construction and mining industries in Cairns or the Far North? Do you need to gain First Aid and CPR skills to help to reduce the number of fatalities on the job site? If you are, then Dawson’s Training has you covered.
Dawsons Training is a RTO and a leading provider of nationally recognised First Aid and CPR training to the construction and mining industries right here in Cairns.

It’s not just about compliance
Certifications in First Aid (HLTAID003) expire every 3 years, and certifications in CPR (HLTAID001) expire every year. Current First Aid and CPR training is essential to ensure you and your co-workers have the knowledge and skills to respond in emergency situations, provide life support and manage casualties. Quality training with Dawsons provides employers with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your workforce has been expertly trained to the standards required by WHS Regulations and team members possess the right skills to respond in emergency situations.
Can’t I just do it online?
All first aid trained team members become important links in the life saving chain. When an accident or emergency actually happens, having the confidence to respond quickly (and do it properly) is critical. Our fully accredited and experienced trainers and assessors train you to a competent standard in a face-to-face environment with hands-on exercises so you have the confidence required to act and make a difference in a real situation. That’s what counts. And you can’t get that online.
