What is First Aid Response?
If an employee is hurt or injured, First Aid Response is the emergency treatment given on site, before professional medical care arrives. This care given at a work site can be anything from cleaning and bandaging a minor wound to performing CPR until an ambulance arrives. This course replaces Occupational First Aid.
