Gain the confidence to preform lifesaving skills and leave your fears behind!

Basic First Aid knowledge is comprised of relatively simple techniques and procedures that can be performed with limited equipment and is typically carried out until professional medical assistance arrives.

You haven’t experienced great First Aid training until you’ve attended one of our courses facilitated in an efficient, effective and fun environment!

OSHA's Best Practices Guide: Fundamentals of a Workplace First-Aid Program (29 CFR 1910.151) states that a first-aid training program should have trainees develop hands-on skills through the use of mannequins and partner practice.

If a hospital, clinic or other such emergency response is not readily available, for instance, within three to four minutes, you must have at least one employee trained in first aid and CPR per shift. There is no recommended number of trained employees to have on staff; it largely depends on your facility's size and type of operations. Responding in a timely manner can mean the difference between life and death, so it is crucial that you have an appropriate number of employees trained.

 

For organizations in multiple sites, such as construction operations, a larger number of employees must be trained. Many experts believe all employees should know how to provide first aid and CPR to ensure that help is always at hand. At a minimum, each department or location should have a responder available on each shift.

When employees undergo first aid training, they are also equipped with valuable knowledge that will allow them to be more safety-conscious. This increased level of safety awareness will lead to reduced reckless behavior and a greater respect for health and safety protocol.
