Course overview

Would you know what to do in a medical emergency at work? Ideally, you’ll never find yourself in a situation where a colleague needs urgent medical help. But, if it did ever happen, knowing what to do before the medics arrive might just save a life.

CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a form of emergency first aid that’s performed when someone is unconscious, unresponsive, and not breathing.  In serious situations like this, delivering immediate CPR can more than double their chance of survival. This course will build everyone’s knowledge of this essential, life-saving skill.

What's covered

When CPR is needed in emergency medical situations

Essential safety measures before, during, and after administering CPR

The 3 steps of the CAB (Compression Airways Breathing) method of resuscitation

The steps of proper use of an automated external defibrillator (AED)

Why your teams need this course

While full CPR training requires physical practice, anyone can administer CPR in an emergency. This course will be useful for anyone who wants an understanding of the basics of emergency CPR, and will help them prepare for more in-depth and hands-on OSHA training and certification. They’ll learn when CPR is necessary, the steps to performing it, and how to do so safely.
