Will You Be Prepared for 9/11 on 9/10?
September 10 is World First Aid Day organized in 2000 by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to promote First Aid training.
Did you know that First Aid training can prevent injury, prevent disability, decrease severity of injuries and illnesses as well as improve recovery and rehabilitation back-to-work? That can dramatically improve peoples’ lives as well as company profits.
Company sponsored First Aid training is one of the most appreciated “employee benefits” and it can help with OSHA/MIOSHA compliance, insurance rates and accident prevention. Just this week, I received another testimonial that using our training saved a life. The rescuer, the victim, their family and others are very thankful that the rescuer’s employer had ASHA Safety provide the training. That employer is a long-standing client, an excellent corporate citizen and a company whose leadership has integrity, ethics and a great deal of business intelligence.
It is too late to prepare for an emergency after the emergency has occurred. How much more terrible would the disaster on 9/11/2001 have been if rescuers had been unprepared on 9/10/2001? This weekend marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 disaster and the 11th anniversary of World First Aid Day.
Will you be prepared? Will your employees and their families be prepared? Why not ensure that EVERY person in your company is trained and prepared before 2012? With ASHA Safety, the more people you have trained, the less expensive it is per person. Why not open up classes to your employees’ spouse and older children? An accident at home or while driving can disable a good employee just as quickly as an accident at work. And families that think safety and plan for emergencies carry an attitude of safety to work. Our training can be customized to your company and your people to focus on the most important hazards and treatments. And we can incorporate your company’s accident prevention and emergency action procedures into the training.
