CPR, First Aid & AED Training
Create a safer workplace for your employees by training them to respond effectively in an emergency.
Training to Save Lives
Employers are required by OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.151 to have a person or persons adequately trained to render first aid for work sites that are not in near proximity to an infirmary, clinic, or hospital (Source: OSHA.gov)
OSHA’s interpretation of “Near Proximity” for emergency medical services is 3 to 4 minutes. The average response time for external services is about 12 minutes. Having well trained employees with the skills and equipment to react quickly will save lives. We conduct training onsite and as site specific as possible to make this training relevant to your employees. A group of people trained together in CPR and First Aid will help each other in an emergency, and will cope much better during and after the incident.
How the CPR, First Aid, & AED Training Programs Work
Critical Training for Your Workplace
Providing life saving skills to your employees says that you not only care about your employees and their families, it also prepares your employees to react quickly and confidently in the event of a medical emergency in your business. Sudden Cardiac Arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the workplace. Sudden illness such as stroke, breathing difficulties, and hypoglycemic events are commonplace. Your employees will have the knowledge and skills to help a fellow co-worker while waiting for emergency services to arrive.
Good Business, Strong Teams
OSHA requires employers to provide training for employees to respond to medical emergencies in the absence of medical care in near proximity to the workplace. Avoid costly fines and reduce civil liabilities by ensuring that your staff has the skills and knowledge to do everything they can to help an injured or ill employee in those critical minutes before emergency personnel arrive. Safety training is a real-world, very practical team building exercise for your employees that can yield tangible benefits for your company.
Training Program Benefits
- Trained employees can act quickly and confidently to assist in a medical emergency
- Rapid response saves lives, and improves an ill employee’s chances of a better outcome
- Employees appreciate their employer for providing this essential training
Safety training strengthens a sense of teamwork and responsibility in your employees
