That’s why having someone at your site who can deliver first aid quickly and effectively is so important.
The National Safety Council is the expert in occupational first aid and CPR training. Guidelines detailing how rescuers should perform vital first aid and basic life support techniques are updated periodically based on medical research, and NSC is an active participant in this process.
Not all first aid courses are the same. Many don’t offer the comprehensive training needed to meet OSHA First Aid Standard 29 CFR 1910.151. NSC training meets this standard, as well as the latest CPR and first aid guidelines, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your industry.
NSC first aid offerings include:
NSC can send an authorized instructor to your work site to provide training to your employees on a schedule that's most convenient. On-site training eliminates the need for travel expenses or extra time away from work. Every year, NSC trains more than 500,000 first aid responders.
