Who needs this course?
Anyone working in the General Industry, Mining Industry, or Construction Industry where there is an absence of an infirmary, clinic, hospital, or physician, that is in near proximity or reasonably accessible in terms of time and distance to the worksite, which is available for the treatment of injured employees.
OSHA Standards 29 CFR 1910.151 (General Industry) and 29 CFR 1926.50 (Construction Industry) primary requirement is that an employer must ensure prompt first aid treatment for injured employees, either by providing for the availability of a trained first aid provider at the worksite, or by ensuring that emergency treatment services are within reasonable proximity of the worksite. OSHA interpretation dated January 16, 2007 defines near proximity to mean that emergency care must be available within no more than 3-4 minutes from the workplace.
MSHA Standard 30 CFR 56/57.18010 requires that each mine have a person available capable of providing first aid on all shifts. The capable person is required to be able to perform patient assessment and artificial respiration; control bleeding; and treat shock, wounds, burns, and musculoskeletal injuries. First aid training must also be made available to all interested miners.
