Soter, under Greek mythology, is the personification of the god for safety, preservation and deliverance. SOTER International was born of a realisation that no one organisation promotes a collaborative effort of developing procedures, equipment, technology and knowledge across the board for pre-hospital delivery nationally.
Whilst the foundations of SOTER lay in Special Operations Medicine, our team has rapidly diversified in order to represent the numerous environments where Australians can require pre-hospital assistance and aims to balance the inequalities between various services of pre-hospital delivery. Additionally we aspire to represent the Paramedic trade in order to lobby and influence positive change for the newest medical registered profession.

Why Work With Us
SOTER prides itself in having a company culture where everyone matters. Although we have different roles, no one person is more important than the next. We select personnel critically and train as required to ensure you receive the product needed in your workplace, a product that in its most basic presentation is personable, proactive, and calm in a crisis; they are highly skilled clinicians, instructors and the sort of person you don’t want to leave your site – until you get their replacement.
SOTER was born out of the observation that the Australian Quality Framework (AQF) First Aid courses lack the level of development, regardless of medical evidence, around initial treatment of severe haemorrhage, breathing and potential life threathening co-morbid injuries that could commonly affect law enforcement and other potential high threat/high risk industry personnel. Secondly the continuing minimalist ‘one size fits all’ approach to instructing people via online packages, decreased face to face instruction and limited in-person assessment in order to make it more financially attractive.
The Australian WHS Model Code of Practice for First Aid states that ‘Duty holders who have a role in first aid include: − persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs). Workers and other persons at the workplace also have duties under the WHS Act, such as the duty to take reasonable care for their own health and safety at the workplace’. With record fines against organisations for failing to provide such duty of care…..high risk business’ are at risk of not suitably preparing their workforce by attending generalised first aid courses.
Can you ultimately afford to provide your responsible persons with ‘tick and flick’ online training and minimal face to face assessment when it comes to saving someones life?
‘As a minimum first aiders should hold nationally recognised Statement/s of Attainment issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for the nationally endorsed first aid unit of competency Provide First Aid or a course providing equivalent skills. A higher level or additional training may be required to ensure your first aiders have appropriate skills for the risks you have identified in your workplace.
