FIRST AID

Why we need to know about First Aid:-

Over 13,000 people die each year in accidents occurring in everyday situations – many of these deaths could be prevented if a trained first aider was on hand. Do you realize that members of your family or a friend are most likely to benefit from your life-saving skills?

Aim of First Aid Training:-

The aim of first aid is to reduce the effects of injury or illness suffered at work. It does not include giving tablets or medicines. The course makes you aware as to how important it is for your employees to know that, how emergencies can be handled until medical aid arrives. First Aid and effective emergency care can make the difference between life and death, rapid versus prolonged recovery, temporary versus permanent disability.

First aid provision must be adequate and appropriate. This means that each department or institution must assess its particular first aid needs taking into account the type of activities with which the department or institution is involved. Sufficient first aid facilities should be available and first aid personnel should be on hand to render assistance to casualties and to summon an ambulance or other professional help.

Trained personnel in emergency care are mandatory for organizations opting for certification under ISO 9001, 2008, 14001 and OHSA 18001. A First Aider should be a trained person who holds a valid certificate of competence in first aid at work. The certificates are issued for three years and requalification is required before the three year period has elapsed
