Supporting Surf Life Saving Australia
TraumaSim Group has been supporting Surf Life Saving Clubs around Australia with bleeding control training solutions. The company’s Trainer’s Packs allow clubs and organizations to quickly and efficiently teach effective responses to massive hemorrhage via tourniquet application and wound packing. Trainer’s Packs take the hard work out of choosing the right task trainer to deliver Advanced First Aid training courses.
Offering choices that focus on either wound packing and hemostatic dressing, tourniquet application, or both, TraumsSim has something for every Trainer and all classroom sizes. Tourniquet application and wound packing are both critical skills to stop the bleed and save a life.
Risk Prevention or Incident Response?
As Australian businesses appear to be on a trend path of moving from a singular focus on risk mitigation to incident response, discussions with some major organizations and companies involved in this trend indicate that there is a genuine concern at the Board level about the ability of organizations to effectively respond in the event or an onsite incident. Too many times stories have been reported of medics and first responders fainting on scene at the sight of blood, and even fake blood.
For this reason, boards and senior executives have directed that their organizations actually test their incident response both to provide confidence and to assist in identifying all reasonable steps in defense should it be needed. TraumaSim can assist educators to conduct their own realistic emergency trauma simulation, through moulage training (workshops), provision of simulated trauma wounds (TraumaWear), or through on-site trauma injury including role-players (healthcare simulation).
Federal Parliament Road Safety Submission
The Australian Trucking Association has publicly supported a TraumaSim parliamentary submission detailing how post-accident care could be improved in regional and remote areas. The draft national road safety strategy identified that in remote areas people are up to 11 times more likely to die as a result of a vehicle accident. TraumaSim was part of a joint submission with the NT and WA Road Transport Associations detailing the results of an industry survey and outcomes of a pilot training program.
