First Aid Courses
What the Law Says:
When there are 10 or more employees, for every group of up to 50 people in the workplace, (or in the case of a shop or an office for every group of up to 100 people), at least one person, who is in possession of a valid certificate of competency in first aid, must be readily available during normal working hours. (Extracted from the Occupational Health and Safety Act - General Safety Regulations)
Facts and Statistics:
First aid is the emergency treatment provided to the patient before the medical personnel arrive. It can be anything from giving mouth to mouth resuscitation, or to putting an ice pack on a swollen ankle. In any first aid situation the provider must remain calm and assess the emergency situation in order to take the correct form of action.
•Lack of oxygen can cause brain damage within 4 to 6 minutes.
•Losing blood is a threat, therefore one of the priorities of the first aider is to stop the bleeding.
•Be aware that shock is possible and even likely in the wake of severe injury.
•A person with neck, back, or leg injuries should not be moved except by professionals, unless it is absolutely necessary.
•Burns can result from not just heat, but chemicals as well.
