First Aider Training :

First aid is the caring for a sick or injured person until medical help arrives. It is always best to have a trained first aider on hand, but any member of staff can be trained in first aid.

First aider training typically covers the following topics:

• First aid kit – what to include and where to keep it
• The role of the first aider
• First aid procedures – how to deal with common injuries and illnesses
• Record keeping

If you are interested in first aider training for your workplace, there is HSS we offer First aid courses.

While first aider training is not required by law, it is highly recommended, especially for workplaces with hazardous conditions. First aiders are trained in how to deal with a variety of different emergencies, so they can provide the best possible care to their colleagues.

If you are interested in becoming a first aider, talk to your employer about HSS training options. You could also look into volunteering with a local first aid team.

Benefits of learning First aid 

  • Emergency Contact Information  You should always carry some kind of identification with you at all times. Having contact information written down somewhere safe can save lives if someone gets hurt or sick.
  • You should keep your contact info in your wallet, purse, backpack, or car. If you don’t have access to these things, you could write down important numbers on a piece of paper and put it in a safe place.
  • Oxygen Mask  An oxygen mask is used to deliver oxygen directly to the bloodstream while a person is having trouble breathing.
