At least some basic knowledge of first aid among staff can be a huge benefit to your organization. Not only does first aid help if there are any emergencies at the workplace, it also helps workers stay safe in their home-life.

Several components of first aid can easily be taught to workers, like: the Heimlich maneuver, RICE, using AED machines, giving allergy medication, CPR and more.

First aid also includes the proper use of PPE. All workers who use PPE should be taught exactly what they use, and why they use it. Examples of what can go wrong when PPE is used incorrectly can be very eye-opening for workers.

First aid is also important if workers are in an area where they could be exposed to natural disasters. An education on what natural disasters your area is at risk for is beneficial.

SafetyNow’s resources give workers some basic first aid skills, the ability to use these skills even outside of the workplace, the knowledge of what PPE is available to protect them, and the awareness of the risks they face based on location and possibility of natural disasters.

Learn CPR!

Someday you may have to help someone who is having a heart attack. It could be someone right here at work, or a family member or a stranger on the street.

How To Handle A Heart Attack

If you are ever going to have to deal with a serious medical emergency, chances are pretty good that it will be a heart attack.

Heart attacks are a leading cause of death among North Americans. They can occur anywhere, and that includes the workplace.

Because heart attacks are so common, it is important that everyone know how to help the patient. The more people who receive training in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), the better. CPR is a procedure for restoring breathing and circulation in emergency situations.
