First Aid: CPR (OWS06)

Would you know what to do in a medical emergency at work? Ideally, you’ll never find yourself in a situation where a colleague needs urgent medical help. But, if it did ever happen, knowing what to do before the medics arrive might just save a life.

CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a form of emergency first aid that’s performed when someone is unconscious, unresponsive, and not breathing. In serious situations like this, delivering immediate CPR can more than double their chance of survival. This course will build your knowledge of this essential life-saving skill.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Recognize when CPR is needed in emergency medical situations
• Identify essential safety measures before, during, and after administering CPR
• Recall the 3 steps of the CAB (Compression Airways Breathing) method of resuscitation
• List the steps of proper use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)

Why take this course?

While full CPR training requires physical practice, anyone can administer CPR in an emergency. This course will be useful for anyone who wants an understanding of the basics of emergency CPR, and will help you prepare for more in-depth and hands-on OSHA training and certification. You’ll learn when CPR is necessary, the steps to performing it, and how to do so safely.
