Pediatric First Aid
Pediatric First Aid provides an ideal training solution for schools, child care providers, youth sports coaches and others required to learn how to respond to medical emergencies involving children and infants.
Many people are often reluctant to administer First Aid treatment because of the fear that they may face legal action if they do something wrong. If you stay within the boundaries of your first aid training you cannot be held legally responsible for any adverse outcome.
As a first aider in the workplace, you have a contractual obligation to administer first aid to other employees and members or the public if your employer identifies this within the company’s assessment of First Aid. Remember that any assistance you can offer to someone who is injured or taken ill can only benefit that person.
