Every five years, guidelines detailing how rescuers should perform vital first aid and basic life support techniques are updated based on medical research.  The National Safety Council is at the leading edge of this process.  Our world-class first aid and CPR training is available at an affordable price and has been updated to meet or exceed the 2015 CPR and ECC Guidelines.  From OSHA compliance to workplace wellness, effective first aid and CPR training is vital to your organization's safety.

consider these facts:

  • 25% of all emergency room visits can be avoided with basic first aid and CPR certification
  • Sudden cardiac arrest represents 13% of all workplace deaths
  • Nearly 5 million workers were injured on the job in 2012, costing companies $198.2 billion
  • 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home

Go with the expert

Not all first aid and CPR courses are created equal.  Many providers don't offer the comprehensive training needed 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.
