Now, the only reminder is from the Queensland Governments transport department so there is a good chance your registration payment could be missed and even worse, yo...

When we deliver our First Aid Courses we receive a lot of great questions. One of the most common questions asked during the training session is “Can I be successfully sued if I provide first aid"? A ‘Good Samaritan’ is defined in legislation as a person acting without expecting financial or other reward for providing assistance. First aiders should not be concerned about being sued if they come to the aid of a fellow human in need as long as they do not act recklessly and try to avoid furth...

Recently we went on a bush trail on a Sunday afternoon, my partner slipped on a greasy rock ledge near a creek crossin...
