First Aid NQF Level 1

Administering first aid skills quickly and effectively may well mean the difference between life and death, or how successfully a patient recovers from their emergency event or illness. Accidents or life-threatening emergencies can happen to anyone, at any time and anywhere.

That is why the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 and the Department of Labour enforces compliance to this act, requiring all employers to have sufficiently trained first aiders and first aid resources in the workplace.

With my facilitator Mr tebogo leqheku it confirmed again that you can revamp the buisness presentation and how it looks but staff members are not revamped definitely the customer experience will always be compromised, would like to congratulate how he can encourage the students to engage and stay energetic for the entire session's
