||This OSHA guide identifies the four essential elements for first-aid programs to be effective: management leadership and employee involvement, worksite analysis, hazard prevention and control, and safety and health training. The guide details the primary components of a first-aid program at the workplace, which include: identifying and assessing workplace risks; designing a program that is specific to the worksite and complies with OSHA first-aid requirements; instructing all workers about the program, including what to do if a co-worker is injured or ill; evaluating and modifying program to keep it current, including regular assessment of the first-aid training course. The guide also includes best practices for planning and conducting safe and effective first-aid training.
