How do I know if my employees are required to be trained in First Aid and CPR?

Posted online

If you perform operations that could be considered hazardous or you’re more than 3-4 minutes away from any emergency medical services, OSHA requires employees to be trained in First Aid & CPR. This includes satellite offices and job site locations. It’s critical that employees have the lifesaving knowledge needed in an emergency. Summit Safety Group can conduct these nationally accredited courses on site.
