Workplace responders need to be trained and certified in Red Cross First Aid, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external defibrillator) in order to respond effectively to a medical emergency in the workplace.

Our courses teach the critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives. Students will learn the basics, as well as choking relief and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults. We teach with the research-proven technique known as "practice while watching," which has instructors observing students as they develop their skills. The instructor can provide feedback and guide the students as they practice.

This course is open to anyone who needs a course completion card in CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory, or other requirements. We recommend this course for anyone, but most certainly for supervisors, as well as designated safety personnel.

Participants will be taught to:

  • Basic bloodborne pathogens
  • Recognize a medical emergency
  • Handle breathing emergencies
  • Handle cardiac emergencies
  • Act appropriately and effectively to sustain life until professional help arrives
  • Prevent disease transmission
  • Identify and care for bleeding, sudden illness and injuries

Bloodborne Pathogen Certification

This certification can be added to the CPR training or taken as a stand-alone course to certify employees in response to emergencies with exposure to bloodborne pathogens. This one hour certification is required for post bloodborne pathogens mitigation and clean-up.

OSHA First Aid Standards Apply

Not all first aid and CPR courses are comprehensive enough to meet OSHA First Aid Standard 29 CFR 1910.151. Don't put your employees' safety at risk. Go with the expert in occupational first aid and CPR training - Highline Safety.
