First Aid Training Saves Lives
Knowing basic first aid and CPR can be a lifesaving skill, both at home and at work. Employers who provide employees with first aid and CPR training ensure that their workplace comply with both federal and provincial/territorial occupational health and safety legislation. More importantly, the skills learned at a first aid training course can help to save a life in an emergency situation in the workplace, at home or in the community.
In 2017, two individuals who participated in On-site First Aid/CPR training classes taught by MidSouthWest Training and Consulting trainers used their first aid skills to save lives in the community. In one case, the individual saved a 13-year-old boy who nearly drowned in a family swimming pool. In the second case, the individual saved the life of a 23-year-old woman by performing emergency CPR before the arrival of the paramedics.
For all those who don’t think they need a CPR course, you just never know if tomorrow could be the day you will.
