Depending on the size of your workforce there will be multiple people that are allocated as First Aiders and are First Aid trained. Know who they are!
There must be someone first aid trained at work at all times. This is why there will usually be a few that go through regular training, because if one is away sick or on leave then there will be someone else on site to call on in an emergency.
First Aid certificates are revalidated every 2 years so it is very important to keep up to date with any changes that may have happened in the way first aid is delivered and also it is a way to keep your knowledge refreshed.
