At OC Safety, we want to make you safer in every arena of your life. Whether you work in a hazardous environment, act as a leader in your job or personal life, or you just want to do your part to be a prepared citizen, our OSHA-certified safety training courses are designed to give you the skills to save lives when the situation calls for it. While there are a variety of situations and occupations that call for safety training, few are more important than the role of being a new parent. Infant CPR is a nuanced technique, requiring thorough training and practice: it’s much more than just ‘two breaths and ten pulses!’ For this blog, we’re going to talk about why training in infant CPR is so vital for new parents.
Safety Training for a Safer Child
If you’re a new parent, we can imagine how excited you are. This is a magical time to cherish your new child, and we’re sure you’re ecstatic to start down the path of raising a child. But it’s also an important time to ask yourself: are you prepared? If an accident were to happen, do you have the skills and knowledge to keep your child safe?
The reality is that when it comes to infants, time is of the essence. The sooner life-saving CPR begins, the better off the baby will be in the long run. The proper skills could be the difference between life and death for an infant.
Thankfully, our OSHA-certified Heartsaver First Aid CPR and new Pediatric First Aid courses will teach you everything you need to do in case of an emergency. This one day course will teach your how to perform infant CPR, how to operate an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on a child, and what to do if a child or infant is choking. You’ll learn everything you need to know to be a responsible, safe new parent.
