    Why Do I Need Safety 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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What do you learn in first aid training?

    First aid training is valuable preparation for any situation you may find yourself in. Training courses teach principles such as how to respond to emergencies, how to perform CPR, and how to use an AED. You will also learn how to treat wounds and other bodily injuries, and how to help someone who is choking or having other breathing emergencies.

    Why is first aid important?

    The whole point of first aid is to sustain an injured person until emergency services arrive. Even minor injuries have the potential to become severe without proper first aid. Knowing how to perform proper first aid can not only help people recover properly but may also save their lives.

    What items can you find in a first aid kit?

    First aid kits come in many sizes, from a small basic kit used for traveling, to large advanced kits stored in offices or homes. Regardless of size, your first aid kit should include basic things such as different-sized adhesive bandages; sterile gauze dressings in small, medium, and large; crêpe-rolled bandages; safety pins; sterile disposable gloves; tweezers; anti-biotic ointment, rash cream, or burn ointment; and some kind of pain relievers.
