Other Important Information:
After completing the course and successfully passing the oral or written and practical tests, trainees receive two certificates, indicating level of training received; (CPR, Adult, Child or Infant with or without AED, Professional or Healthcare Provider and First Aid, Oxygen Administration). An emphasis on quick response to first aid situations is incorporated throughout the program. Other program elements include: basic first aid intervention, basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and universal precautions for self-protection. Specific program elements include all or limit training or skills specific to the type of injury: shock, bleeding, poisoning, burns, temperature extremes, musculoskeletal injuries, bites and stings, medical emergencies, and confined spaces. Instruction in the principles and first aid intervention of injuries will cover the following sites: head and neck, eye, nose, mouth and teeth, chest, abdomen, and hand, finger, and foot injuries. Employers are responsible for the type, amount, and maintenance of first aid supplies needed for their particular program. The training program should be periodically reviewed with current first aid techniques and knowledge. CPR retesting should occur every 2 year and first aid skills and knowledge should be reviewed every 2 years. OSHA recommends that CPR training include having trainees develop ‘hands-on’ skills through the use of mannequins and partner practice. The references below provide further fundamentals to help develop and maintain first aid program and skills.
