Learn the skills to save a life.
First aid is the knowledge and skills used to help someone who is injured or ill until professional medical help arrives. It can be the difference between life and death.
Not all first aid courses are the same. Many don’t offer the comprehensive training needed to meet OSHA First Aid Standard 29 CFR 1910.151. Barbara’s NSC-certified training meets the standard and the latest CPR and first aid guidelines. This training can be customized to meet the specific needs of your industry.
A maximum of eight people per class can be trained in a space provided by your company. This class is anywhere from 6 ½ -8 hours long depending on class participation. This training consists of videos, discussion, and hands-on experience with first aid events, CPR and AED. There is a charge for this service based upon location, cost of materials and number of people.
Here are some of the benefits of taking a first aid class:
- Learn how to assess a situation and provide the appropriate care.
- Gain confidence in your ability to help someone in need.
- Be able to help others until professional medical help arrives.
- Be more prepared for an emergency.

OSHA is taking notice of the increase in Active Shooter/Active Threat/Workplace Violence events. When such an event occurs and the employer has not provided appropriate training, OSHA is utilizing the General Duty Clause to cite employers. The General Duty Clause applies to ALL employers and states “each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”

In 2021, President Biden launched a coordinated interagency initiative to protect US workers from heat illness. As a result, OSHA launched its National Heat Illness Emphasis Enforcement Program along with taking the first steps in developing a Heat Workplace Standard.
The National Heat Illness Emphasis Enforcement Program is an important step in protecting workers from heat-related hazards. By enforcing heat safety standards and providing compliance assistance, OSHA is helping to keep workers safe on the job. Barbara’s training can help you do the same.
“Spot the Hazard” is one of the most requested meetings. This topic can be customized with client-specific photos. It encourages employees to not only notice the safety hazard but also emphasizes:
- The importance of reporting the safety hazard.
- The risk of interacting with the safety hazard.
- What safety precautions can/need to be taken when in the vicinity of the safety hazard.
- How to help management resolve the safety hazard.
