This came in by email from one of our clients and highlights why first aid training is so important;
Over the last couple of months we’ve had a few instances where first aiders training has been tested and, you as first aiders have shown your worth, your mettle and why you choose to be a first aider.
Let me give you a few examples:
- An employee had a heart attack at work and you the first aiders used CPR for 10 minutes keeping him alive until the paramedics could take over – you stopped someone dying, because of your training, effort and dedication.
- An employee suffered a severe panic attack resulting in hyperventilation and risk to their physical health, again, you the first aider helped calm them down in a very panicked and risky situation.
Thats why we do first aid!
