For Elder Care Providers, Home Health Aides, and Family Caregivers

Older adults are often medically fragile and experience serious health concerns, including Sudden Cardiac Arrest, more often than any other population group. First Response Training International provides elder care providers and other caregivers with the necessary skills to evaluate an individual after an accident, fall, or injury, determine the proper response – including knowing when to call 911, and provide appropriate care until emergency personnel arrive. Our courses are OSHA* & ILCOR compliant, which is helpful for individuals seeking employment in nursing homes, senior housing, memory care facilities and other elder care situations.

OSHA’s standard for first aid training in general industry is listed in 1910.151, provides:

Medical services and first aid

(a)The employer shall ensure the ready availability of personnel for advice and consultation on matters of plant health.

(b)In the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid. Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.

The bloodborne pathogens standard at 1910.1030(g)(2)

This requires employers to provide training to any employees who have occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, such as employees assigned medical or first aid duties by their employers. The standard at 29 CFR 1910.1030(b) defines “occupational exposure” as “reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that may result from the performance of an employee’s duties.” If an employee is trained in first aid and identified by the employer as responsible for rendering medical assistance as part of his/her job duties, that employee is covered by the bloodborne pathogens standard.
