Washington Industrial Safety & Health Act and Washington State Department of Labor Industries WAC 296-800-15005 states that employers must ensure adequately trained personnel are available in the event a medical emergency occurs in the workplace. To maintain state-recognized certification, you must attend a four-hour recertification course every two years.
To assist employers in meeting this requirement, our First Aid/CPR/AED Recertification Training recertifies attendees in basic first aid and CPR. We certify you in the operation of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and provide you with the knowledge, skills, and background to effectively recognize an emergency and take appropriate action.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
Identify two methods to assure scene safety for a rescuer.
Demonstrate two methods of positioning a victim to provide a clear breathing passage.
Identify and demonstrate two methods to control external bleeding.
Describe the signs of cardiac arrest and demonstrate CPR on a mannequin.
Explain the danger of moving a spinal injury victim and demonstrate spinal stabilization.
Identify three basic actions to take when assisting victims of a medical emergency.
Demonstrate proper AED placement and use for a victim of cardiac arrest.
