Provide First Aid is a general requirement for workplaces to have employees trained to become first responder’s when an emergency arises. Nowadays, providing First Aid has become a course that should be conducted at least once in a persons lifetime. It is recommended that in accordance with the First Aid in the Workplace Code of Practice and the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines, that first aid skills are renewed every three years and resuscitation skills are renewed every 12 months.
