Employing staff with first aid and CPR training is a smart move by employers. In fact, many Australian employers and industries incorporate first aid training packages into their own industry-specific curriculum for well-rounded qualifications and capabilities. Employers such as O-I Glass engage in proactive solutions by encouraging employees to undertake targeted first aid training. As a global glass packaging powerhouse with 27,000 employees and more than 10,000 product offerings, dangers exist that need to be minimised, and Real First Aid solutions are the answer.

What was the O-I and Real First Aid Advanced Resuscitation experience?
