Participants will receive practical training in learning the procedures to perform CPR with the use of adult manikins, as well as the operation of an AED in the class. Face shields, pocket masks, gloves, bio-hazardous spill kits, and other resources are shown and discussed.
Another practical exercise provides a simulated exposure to potential pathogens and shows how to minimize the exposure through the use of PPE and a proper decon procedure.
Ensure employees can respond to a workplace accident with first aid, CPR, and if necessary, an AED.

Keep an injured person safe from further injury until medical help can arrive.
