  • Medical Training

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if your company provides medical training?? If so, What training?? Was it First Aid/CPR/AED, First Responder, EMT-B, Paramedic, etc. What training did you seek on your own??

      The Quebec government pays a company to have 1 employee trained in first aid for every 50 employees the company has.

      The course to get your Security Guard license here requires a 16 hour first aid course.

      Personally when I started in hotel security I took the EMT-A course & worked as a volunteer First Responder for a few years to keep up the skills.

      I believe that Security working with the public, should be professional first responders for all emergencies. Thus my avitar).
      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

        Hotel you hit the nail on he head. We as Security Officers are the first line of defense for all emergencies. The problem is some of our fellow officers (no one on this forum)think its just a job, and give less than satisfactory job performance. The other issue is with professional responders, but that is another thread for another time.

        My job, we just got CPR and AED. We were supposed to get First Aid, but that didn't happen for god knows why.

        I do intend on getting my First Responder and then move on to EMT-B.

          My last good job provided us with first aid/CPR/AED training plus we had several AEDs on the property. The company where I was assigned also provided the same training for anyone who wanted it so there were probably about 20-50 trained people there every day.


          My employer here in TX? Not a thing which means I won't lift a finger for anyone on site (industrial plant). I'll call 911 and stand by for the fire dept and then go back to my job.

            The Canadian Criminal Code contains an article that says 'if you are trained to provide aid and someone needs that aid, you MUST provide it'.

                Last I knew Texas had the same. I believe it is "Failure to Stop and Render Aid" or something along those lines. Think the spirit of the law was intended to apply to motor vehicle acidents, but it applies everywhere.

                  Neither Texas nor CanadaLand can order someone to do more than they think they can do with their training, PLUS as there is NO issued PPE for ANYONE at the plant, all I'll say is "hold that paper towel on the red stuff until the big red truck arrives".

                    Keep current

                    Most companies I've been with offer basic adult 1st Aid / CPR at hiring. Keep the certification up. They may not remind you when your certification is due to lapse - it's up to you to stay current.

                    Even if you have to pay for recertification yourself, I recommend it. As is stressed on this forum, emergencies can come up anytime - even if your site hasn't had one in years. You may find yourself in a situation where you are the only one who knows CPR, and help may be many minutes away.

                            I am a certified Emergency Medical Responder and AHA BLS CPR and AED Instructor. These came from my part time gig at the Fire district however they are useful, in security as well.

                              A handful of our staff have the basic first aid and CPR/AED. Myself and one other have the first responder training and one guy is a paramedic.
