Keeping the workplace safe isn’t just common sense, it involves a number of mandated policies and practices that must be followed to remain compliant. Depending on the worksite and dangers present at the location, this can include the use of protective equipment, first aid training, and even special certifications.
Understanding what’s required for your workplace is a great place to start. As both the employer and the employee there is a responsibility to keep conditions safe and peaceful. Safety training ensures everyone is on the same page about where to access first aid supplies and what to do should an emergency situation occur.
Here’s a closer look at what to expect with first aid training sessions in the workplace.
In order to ensure all employees have received hands-on training on the procedures necessary to conduct emergency care, holding an onsite training course is a great route. Professional instructors certified in First Aid, CPR, AED and more can be chosen to meet your requirements. They will put together a specialized training plan that fits your organization's specific needs and incorporates your company specific guidelines and budgets. Even if staff members are already trained, recertifications are a great reason to book them for an onsite training session as well.
Online & Video First Aid Courses
If an in-person instruction for first aid procedures is not necessary or required, it’s still important to get information on proper handling of emergency situations out to employees. This can be done using online training courses or even video courses.
