What is First Aid?
In the event of injury, illness, or medical emergency, conducting First Aid has 3 major goals: preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery.
First Aid knowledge and skills can save lives, alleviate the pain experienced by the patient, and reduce the time needed to recover from the injury or illness.
First Aid is not limited to providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). A First Aid course covers many subjects, including the proper use of various First Aid tools and techniques, learning the appropriate response to different types of medical emergencies, and how to prevent and address workplace-specific injuries.
What Are the Key Benefits of Learning First Aid?
There are many personal and professional benefits of learning First Aid. Learning First Aid allows you to identify dangers in your home or workplace and take steps to reduce the risks they pose.
Most injuries and illnesses take place at home or at work, and knowing First Aid skills and techniques allows you to help people — family, colleagues, or even strangers — in the event of a medical emergency.
What’s more, knowing First Aid can improve your employability in many industries and workplace settings. Taking a First Aid class can also earn you points for Continuing Professional Development.
