First aid, CPR, and AED training saves lives. More than 350,000 cardiac arrests strike outside the hospital every year, but only 40% of those vicitms recieve the CPR they need. CPR can double or triple the chances of survival, according to the American Heart Association.
While OSHA requires many occupations to have training, such as daycare providers, healthcare professionals, electricians, and loggers, to name a few, this is one training that can save a life at home, at work, or anywhere you go!

What businesses are required by OSHA to have first aid & CPR training?
OSHA’s standards 1910.151 and 1926.50 require that employers must provide prompt first aid to injured employees. In this important letter of interpretation that defines “prompt”, OSHA states:
“The primary requirement addressed by these first aid standards is that an employer must ensure prompt first aid treatment for injured employees, either by providing for the availability of a trained first aid provider at the worksite, or by ensuring that emergency treatment services are within reasonable proximity of the worksite.” The employer must ensure that “. . . adequate first aid is available in the critical minutes between the occurrence of an injury and the availability of physician or hospital care for the injured employee.”
The letter further explains: “While the first standards do not prescribe a number of minutes, OSHA has long interpreted the term ‘near proximity’ to mean that emergency care must be available within no more than 3-4 minutes from the workplace. Medical literature establishes that, for serious injuries such as those involving stopped breathing, cardiac arrest, or uncontrolled bleeding, first aid treatment must be provided within the first few minutes to avoid permanent medical impairment or death. Accordingly, in workplaces where serious accidents such as those involving falls, suffocation, electrocution, or amputation are possible, emergency medical services must be available within 3-4 minutes, if there is no employee on the site who is trained to render first aid.”
