RLSSWA staff keep Justin Bieber fans safe

9 March 2017

When Justin Bieber opened the Australian leg of his Purpose World Tour on Monday night at Perth’s Nib Stadium Royal Life Saving Society WA Workforce Solutions staff were on hand to ensure concert goers enjoyed a safe and enjoyable experience.

The event saw 25,000 Beliebers pack the stadium to see the 23 year old perform songs from his latest album, and already almost decade long career. With so many people at the event it was vital to have first aid services on hand should anyone need assistance.

Royal Life Saving Society WA provided 24 staff for the concert, including two Logistics & Operations Coordinators and 22 First Aid Officers. We had staff on hand at Nib Stadium from 8am on the day in time for set up, until pack down at the end of the show to ensure the safety of all those attending, including concertgoers and event staff.

Throughout the day our first aid officers handled approximately 14 first aid incidents, two of which required paramedic hand over and ambulance transfer. Issues included heat nausea and gastric type symptoms, while there was also one more serious incident in which a patient presented with a possible heart condition. It’s vital that such first aid services are available at all events across the community, to ensure assistance is available in case of such incidents that can prove fatal. 

Each year Royal Life Saving Society WA helps to keep over one million Western Australians of all ages safe at everything from small Local Government events, to huge concerts like this. We provide teams of highly skilled first aid staff, with a minimum of Advanced First Aid qualifications. Many of our staff also work in the health industry as Nurses, Doctors and Paramedics.

We’d like to thanks Venues West and Nib Stadium for the opportunity to be a part of the event and look forward to working at further events at the venue in future.

Royal Life Saving would also love to provide first aid services at your next event. You can find out more and submit an enquiry at the link below.
