When medical care cannot be immediately accessed, Red Cross is available to offer initial care for injury or illness. This initial care is given so to save the life of the person and to prevent any further harm or injury.
The care given before emergency medical help arrives can literally mean the difference between life and death, but knowing the correct thing to do at the right time is very important. First aid training is often mandatory for certain employees in the work place, but unlike other types of safety training, the skills learnt in first aid courses are also applicable to an individual’s daily life. Let’s face it, accidents or incidents can happen anywhere and at anytime.
