    Not just employees, but EVERY adult should know first aid basics, especially CPR. Great post!

    First aid training in the workplace is a great idea. I was a classroom teacher and we would have training each year!

      That is awesome that you had training every year. You just never know when you might need it.

    First Aid is so very important for everyone to know. I remember the first company I worked, offered basic first aid and CPR classes for free. I always took them so I would at least know what to do in an emergency. 🙂

      It is important to know CPR and first aid. Every company should train their employees because seconds count in an emergency.

    I worked at a small start up a few years ago, and they were great about getting us trained in first aid. Whoever wanted to learn was welcome to take the course for free. Most employees signed up, so we had someone with the information in most areas during the day. I liked knowing I knew what to do to help someone.

      I would like knowing that someone was around that knew as well. even if you never needed it, having that knowledge there is a comfort.

    I got very good first aid training at my job and it really helps with knowing all the important stuff for first aid. It is so important to know the proper procedures for certain injuries so the person does not get hurt more by me trying to help them.

      It should be taught in all industries. You just never know when you are going to need it.

    I totally agree with this, and would also say that every adult should have first aid training. You never know when you will need it & you are much more likely to remain calm if you have the training.

    We have been doing safety classes at work and they are quite helpful, we have several important topics.

    I completely agree! However, I feel like every adult should have basic first aid training. I recently got certified in CPR at a local church.

    I think, in general, adults should take a refresher course on first aid and CPR periodically. You just never know when you might need it.

    I have first aid kits in the house and my car, just in case.

    I absolutely agree that every adult and even capable child should know first aid basics. It enables action, not panic.

    I work in a medical clinic so we are required to annually complete a first aid class. It is so important!

    I work in a restaurant and agree 100% with you here. I think it should be made mandatory but we have not had any training and most places I have worked at have not

    Both of my (grown) kids took basic first aid courses in their teens. You never know when that valuable information could save a life. Good post!

    We take safety classes but not actual first aid classes. This is something our organization should require of everyone.

    I completely agree and since you spend a lot of time at work something could in theory happen to you there. You never know what can happen and you should be prepared for it. I took so many “high 5 selling skills” tests and stuff like that but was never trained in this and a lot of people did get hurt on the job. It would have been more beneficial to know IMO. Thank you for sharing.

    I completely agree! Most companies have a wide range of people working, including young people whom may be pregnant, those living with chronic disease such as diabetes, or older workers/or young whom may be prone to heart issues. It seems like a company would WANT to be on top of health crisis, because work is like your second family…you’d want to do the right thing and be able to help. It seems so silly that every company does not enlist first aid AND CPR.

    Not all companies can afford it but it would be nice to at least have one traained. CPR is needed everywhere iin and out of the workplace. It can save many lives.

    I agree that every employee should have first aid training. If there was ever an emergency, they should be able to take care of it and not have to rely on a medical personel
