Why do I need first aid and CPR training?
In line with the standards listed above, many industries require employees to be trained in first aid and basic CPR to ensure that individuals receive life-saving treatment in the event of an emergency.
When it comes to refresher training, the standard in some instances are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
