First Aid & CPR Training
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH…
The MEDIC® FIRST AID Training program is designed specifically to make the learning experience fun relaxed and memorable. We take a hands-on approach to learning in a low stress, team oriented environment.
THAT’S FAST AND FLEXIBLE
Our First Aid and CPR training can be tailored to meet your company’s requirements. · Can be taught on all shifts & on Saturdays. · Can be broken into two segments to accommodate your scheduling concerns. Tell us what works for you and your staff – we’ll get it done your way.
AND SAVES MONEY AS WELL AS LIVES!
OSHA regulations require staff training in emergency first aid and CPR for most facilities; recent court decisions have affirmed that even four minutes is too long to wait for paramedic’s OSHA fines can put a serious dent in anyone’s budget!
KEEP COSTS DOWN
Workers compensation costs keep rising; so do health and liability insurance costs. These burdensome expenses can be reduced through proper training of your employees. Your company may even qualify for insurance discounts by having a specific emergency action plan in place.
The Medic® First Aid program is fast paced but thorough. Our instructors constantly reinforce and practice the seven basic skills of patient care:
- Primary assessment
- Obstructed airways
- Control of bleeding
- Shock management
- Illness assessment
- Injury assessment
TO MANAGE ANY MEDICAL EMERGENCY
Our students finish the course with confidence. They know they are prepared to handle any medical emergency in a calm,correct and caring manner and are secure enough to use their new skills when needed.
AND MEET OSHA REQUIREMENTS
Most companies agree that preventing unnecessary suffering and injury is sufficient reason for training employees in the essential skills of first aid and CPR. However there is yet another benefit for your company OSHA (29 CFR1910.151 (b) ND 29 CFR 1926.50) requires first aid and CPR trained staff to be available at all times in your workplace to care for ill or injured employees whenever there is no nearby infirmary, clinic, or hospital. Fines for ignoring that directive have exceeded $70,000.00!
If you don’t do it for your own serenity or to guard the safety and well-being of your employees and their families, do it to prevent some serious erosion of this years profit margin.
