Health and Safety Institute – Medic First Aid

This training is very interactive with the instructor and student demonstrations. Students are given comprehensive step by step training on specific first aid applications. This extremely flexible program meets OSHA and other federal and state regulatory requirements for training employees how to respond and care for medical emergencies at work.

This website provides information for employers, employees, first-aiders and training organisations on first aid at work. As a minimum, a low-risk workplace such as a small office should have a first-aid box and a person appointed to take charge of first-aid arrangements, such as calling the emergency services if necessary. Employers must provide information about first-aid arrangements to their employees. Workplaces where there are more significant health and safety risks are more likely to need a trained first-aider. The first-aid needs assessment tool will help employers decide what first aid arrangements are appropriate for their workplace.

This course is suitable for all individuals.
