Workplace Wellness: First Aid Courses
First aid is one of those things that you everyone hopes they will never need, but is a good thing to know in case of an emergency.
From a broader business perspective, bringing a first aid trainer into the workplace can become part of a team-building exercise, as it encourages people to work together to learn for a common goal.
Many Workplace First Aid courses also include a Workplace Safety component, which teaches staff to identify dangerous situations before accidents happen. This can have a significant impact on the bottom line in terms of both human cost (lost time, Worker's Comp claims administration time) and insurance and claims costs.
