First Aid shows employees that knowing basic first aid procedures can often limit the severity of any type of injury… or even prevent a death. In most facilities, not a day goes by without some type of injury occurring. It can be as serious as a chemical burn or as minor as a small cut. But any injury can be painful, and affect an employee’s work performance… as well as their activities off the job. Areas covered in the course include cuts and bleeding, muscle pulls and sprains, burns, broken bones, shock, AEDs (automated external defibrillators), artificial respiration and CPR, and more.
