Introduction:
Immediately after an accident occurs, first aid is the primary concern.
It is very important that someone trained in first aid apply treatment.
People without first aid training normally should only undertake common-sense procedures.

No First Aid Training?
In case of a serious injury, you should make the person as comfortable as possible (without risking further injury) and call for medical help; in case of a minor injury, give the person whatever aid is necessary from the property's first aid kit, fill out an accident report, and urge the victim to see a physician if that seems appropriate.

First Aid Training
Encourage employees to receive first aid training. The American Red Cross provides excellent training throughout the United States. If possible, training should be given to several employees so that it is more likely that someone with first aid training will always be on the premises.

Supplies and Information
An operation should have first aid equipment and supplies on-site in a convenient area. In large operations, particularly those with more than one floor, several first aid kits may be needed.
Display first aid information. Post various types of medical and first aid posters in appropriate places throughout your food service operation.

Choking
Choking because of an obstructed airway is a leading cause of accidental death. If a choking person is not coughing or is unable to speak, that's your cue to perform the Heimlich maneuver immediately. Here are a few steps to help save a choking victim The Heimlich maneuver is generally considered the best first aid for choking.
IMPORTANT! You should only carry out the Heimlich maneuver if you have received first aid training from a trained professional.

Heimlich Maneuver – Starting Position
IMPORTANT! You should only carry out the Heimlich maneuver if you have received first aid training from a trained professional.
Step 1 Ask the choking person to stand if he or she is sitting.
Step 2 Place yourself slightly behind the standing victim
Step 3 Reassure the victim that you know the Heimlich maneuver and are going to help.

Heimlich Maneuver - Procedure
IMPORTANT! You should only carry out the Heimlich maneuver if you have received first aid training from a trained professional.
Step 4 Place your arms around the victim's waist.
Step 5 Make a fist with one hand and place your thumb toward the victim, just above his or her belly button.
Step 6 Grab your fist with your other hand
Step 7 Deliver five upward squeeze-thrusts into the abdomen.

Heimlich Maneuver – Remember!
IMPORTANT! You should only carry out the Heimlich maneuver if you have received first aid training from a trained professional.
Step 8 Make each squeeze-thrust strong enough to dislodge a foreign body.
Step 9 Understand that your thrusts make the diaphragm move air out of the victim's lungs, creating a kind of artificial cough.
Step 10 Keep a firm grip on the victim, since he or she can lose consciousness and fall to the ground if the Heimlich maneuver is not effective.
