First aid and medical emergencies

If you need first aid assistance, most areas have local first aiders.

Security Officers are also trained first aiders and have access to defibrillators for use in heart attacks. Security can be contacted on 222 on University phones or by calling 1800 062 579.

First aiders are trained to treat minor injuries or illness and in the case of serious injury or illness, provide initial care until medical aid arrives.

Medical assistance should be sought in the event of a serious injury or illness directly through 000: dial 0, then 000. Please advise Security immediately if an ambulance is called or a defibrillator is required.
