Why is First Aid training so important?

First Aid training is the very basic skill and knowledge that allows you to treat the sick and injured victim in the home or work place.

Providing First Aid treatment can save a life, as it is the very first steps in any treatment to keeping a person alive until the ambulance can arrive.


You may be aware that the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act 85 of 1993) requires all companies to have staff fully trained in First Aid, Basic Firefighting.
