The Importance of Having an Up to Date First Aid Certificate

Most businesses provide their employees with health and safety training. However, first aid is many times overlooked. First aid is very important in the workplace, not just for employees, but for the customers as well. Here are the four benefits of first aid training for the workplace.

  1. Cost

The cost of the first aid training will depend on the training cost and the provider. Our training usually costs $100 per person, but group rates are available. The amount of sessions will depend on how many employees need to be trained.

Many businesses will try to cut costs by only training a few of their employees. However, this can end up being more costly because of workplace and customer injuries. Providing first aid training to all your employees can reduce the number of accidents and their severity, which can have a huge financial impact in the long term.

  1. Tailored to Your Industry

There are many general first aid programs that are offered. However, you can also find specialised first aid training that is tailored to your industry. We can also help with your risk management system and budget, which means that your employees are trained to provide help that could be needed in your industry at a cost that you can afford.

  1. Morale

Morale is an important part of any business. Higher morale leads to positive attitudes, which helps create positive results. The well-being and happiness of your employees can help you build a stronger relationship with them when you create a better working environment for them. First aid training will help make sure that your employees are safe and healthy while enhancing morale and well-being.

  1. The Practical Benefits

The practical benefits of first aid training are very important. First aid training can help your employees understand how to be safe when they are working, which can help lower the amount of accidents you have at your business. First aid also helps save lives in extreme situations.  So, even simple first aid training can help you take immediate action, which could help you save a life.

First aid training teaches you and your employees what should be in a first aid kit and how to use these items. You also learn the different ways that you can react to most emergencies, and what is the best course of action. This makes everyone an unofficial health and safety manager if their training is required.

Trainees also learn how to perform CPR on people of all ages, how to control blood flow and bandage injuries. These are critical skills for just about any emergencies that happen during day-to-day life. Workplace, first aid training, is not just about training your employees to provide help at work because the knowledge that they learn can be applied just about anywhere.
