First Aid/CPR/AED for the Workplace
seen three managers come and go,been loyal to my company for 12  years, and saved a co-worker’s life.
This course seeks to help participants identifyand eliminate potentially hazardous conditions in their environment, recognize emergencies andmake appropriate decisions for first aid care. It teaches the knowledge and skills that individualsin the workplace need to know to give immedi-ate care to an ill or injured person until moreadvanced medical care arrives.
In late 1998, the American Red Cross formed anindependent panel of nationally recognizedhealth and safety experts known as the AdvisoryCouncil on First Aid and Safety (ACFAS). Drawingon a body of collective expertise from suchdiverse fields as emergency medicine, occupa- tional health, sports medicine, school health,emergency medical services response, disastermobilization and education, ACFAS was designedas a conduit to establish the standard in first aidcare. ACFAS was charged to advise the RedCross in areas related to the development anddissemination of audience-appropriate informa- tion and skills training in first aid and safety.According to the National First Aid ScienceAdvisory Board, of which the Red Cross is afounding member, first aid is defined as assess-ments and interventions that can be performedby a bystander (or performed by the patient) withminimal or no medical equipment. A first aidprovider is a person with formal first aid, emer-gency care or medical training (or the patient)who provides assessments and interventions that can be performed by a bystander (or per-formed by the patient) with minimal or no med-ical equipment.
The American Red Cross mission is to providerelief to victims of disaster and help people pre-vent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.But we need your help. There are five actions that every organization, individual and familyshould take to better prepare themselves for anemergency or disaster, these include—
