    I really like the quote you shared by OSHA and how it mentioned that there should be at least one person who is trained to render first aid. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a coworker who was injured or started having a seizure and then nobody knowing how to help them. Even if there wasn’t a single person who was specialized in first-aid it could be a good idea to get your whole workforce to take a first aid class so there will always be a few individuals who at least have a basic idea of how to handle most work place injuries. Being prepared to help someone who is injured in your workplace could help save lives of coworkers or employees.
