WHAT IS FIRST AID
Jun 09 , 2021
What is first aid?
First aid is the immediate medical care given to an injured or ill individual until they are well or until full medical treatment arrives. The aim of first aid is to care for the injury or illness of an individual, with the intention to put them at ease and to prevent any further discomfort.

In your workplace there should be designated individuals who are responsible for administering first aid. They will be qualified first aiders, who have taken a first aid training course which is specific to their type of workplace environment. As a first aider you need to be able to assess a range of different situations. If someone falls and cuts their arm, it's your responsibility to identify the extent of the injury, and to subsequently clean, bandage and tend to the injury.

If the injury or illness is beyond your capability, first aid can be used as an immediate measure until further medical assistance arrives, such as an ambulance.



What does first aid training cover?
First aid can involve some of the following actions:
· Tending to cuts
· Helping with minor headaches/flu symptoms
· Administering CPR
· Bandaging a wound
· Applying a sling to a fractured bone

First aid training will teach you the following skills:
· Life-saving techniques, such as the Heimlich manoeuvre and CPR.
· How to deal with unconsciousness
· How to control bleeding
· How to control trauma
· How to use essential first aid equipment, such as a defibrillator.
· How to treat severe and minor injuries
· To identify and care for different illnesses

Why is first aid important?
First aid in the workplace is of the utmost importance as it helps to maintain the safety of all employees if they fall ill or encounter a sudden injury whilst at work.Such as in UK, The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers in the UK to ensure that there is adequate equipment, facilities and personnel to conduct first aid in the workplace. If your organisation does not establish a thorough first aid procedure, including essential equipment and designated first aiders, your organisation will be subject to investigation by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Therefore, knowledge and training of first aid in the workplace will ensure that all employees are part of a safe environment, and your organisation is compliant with UK legislation.
