Meet Wom (Andrew): From Adventurer to Lifesaver, Empowering Rural and Remote Safety

Hi everyone, I’m excited to introduce you to Andrew, a passionate Remote Area First Aid trainer with a unique blend of experience!

For the past 17 years, Wom (Andrew) has served as a paramedic with the NSW Ambulance Service, bringing real-world knowledge and a dedication to saving lives. But before sirens and stretchers, Wom thrived as a tour guide in Southeast Asia, honing his resourcefulness and adaptability. He then spent 6 years shaping young minds as an outdoor education instructor, nurturing a love for adventure and safety awareness.

Witnessing the high injury rates in agriculture sparked a fire in Wom’s belly. He now leverages his skills and experience to empower rural and remote communities and Agriculture operations, helping families, friends and workmates create safer work environments.

When he’s not training, you’ll find Andrew catching waves or exploring waterways on his kayak. Join us in welcoming Wom, whose adventurous spirit and dedication to safety make him a valuable asset to our team!
