First aid

  1. 1. FIRSTFIRST AIDAID
  2. 2. PREPARED BY: Melfred Espijon
  3. 3. INTRODUCTIONINTRODUCTION First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by a lay person to a sick or injured casualty until definitive medical treatment can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.
  4. 4. AIMS OF FIRST AIDAIMS OF FIRST AID Preserve life - the overriding aim of all medical care, including first aid, is to save lives
  5. 5. Prevent further harm - also sometimes called preventing the condition worsening, this covers both external factors, such as moving a patient away from a cause of harm, and applying first aid techniques to prevent worsening of the condition, such as applying pressure to stop a bleed becoming dangerous.
  6. 6. Promote recovery - first aid also involves trying to start the recovery process from the illness or injury, and in some cases might involve completing a treatment, such as in the case of applying a plaster to a small wound.
  7. 7. TRAININGTRAINING
  8. 8.  What would happen today, if there was an accident at your workplace? Would employees and management know what to do? Would the injured person get the best possible care? When an accident happens, a first aid program that meets the requirements of the law and is tailored to the type and size of the workplace can literally make the difference between life and death, or between recovery and permanent disablement.
  9. 9. All work sites should have a person with first aid or medical training readily available in case of an emergency.  Employers should insure that all employees know where emergency information is posted at the work site. The emergency notice should state the phone numbers of the closest ambulance service, fire/rescue unit, police station, and hospital. First aid equipment and supplies, including a variety of dressings and instruments, as well as an up-to-date first aid manual, should be stored where they can be reached quickly and easily in case of an accident.
  10. 10. NEED OF FIRSTNEED OF FIRST AIDAID
  11. 11. It’s a fact accidents will happen. providing your employees with adequate first aid supplies ensures that you are prepared for minor injuries in the work place and shows that you are concerned about their well being and safety.
  12. 12. First aid equipment in the work place environment, however, may far exceed a small box of adhesive strip bandages and a cold pack. understand minimum standards and requirements and customize your business first aid kit to suit your particular environment
  13. 13. FIRST AID KITFIRST AID KIT A first aid kit is a collection of supplies and equipments for use in giving first aid. The box should be kept at all accessible places. It should be made of metal or plastic to prevent it being destroyed by pests. The contents should be checked regularly by the safety officer
  14. 14. SIGN OF FIRST AID: The ISO sets a standard for first aid kits of being green,with a white cross,in order to make them easily recognisable to anyone requiring first aid.
  15. 15. An adequately equipped first aidAn adequately equipped first aid box should contains these items:box should contains these items: Cohesive bandage Antiseptic (savlon) or (detol) Scissors Thermometers Latex gloves Bandages Clean dry cloth pieces Eye wash
  16. 16. Safety pins Aspirin or pain relievers Cleaning agent or soap Masks Hot and cold spray Cotton Laboratory safety spectacles
  17. 17. CONCLUSIONCONCLUSION Nearly one third of the people die on their way to hospital. if timely first aid is administrated to them, their lives can be saved. You don’t have to be doctor to save lives- we can do it by learning how to do first aid.
  18. 18. An added benefit of acquiring these skills and equipments is knowing that you are in control of any situation that may arise. If you have ever seen an accident and were not sure of what to do, imagine for 1 second the difference it would make and the lives you could spare. Don’t underestimate how important these skills are
