First Aid, CPR, & AED Training
for the Power Generation Sector
Power generation workers face unique dangers. Your workforce deserves training to meet these challenges.
On-Site First Aid, CPR, and AED Training and Certification
When working in the power generation sector, electrical shock is a very real threat. In the event of an electrical shock, CPR must be started within 4 minutes to be effective. Current OSHA standards require that workers have access to first aid, which is why we provide first aid, CPR, & AED training for your workplace.
Salvation Safety, as a divison of Alpha-Omega Training and Compliance (AOTC), is part of the Health Safety Institute (HSI) — formerly the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI). Our instructors understand the unique hazards of industrial workers, and our courses include specialized instruction relating to electrical shock.

We off three levels of first aid, CPR, & AED training. All three courses cover electrical shock, and each course also provides CPR, AED, and first aid certification upon completion.
Salvation Safety provides the ASHI Advanced First Aid course, designed for those who require or desire additional training beyond the scope of the basic first aid, CPR, & AED training, though not the level of EMR.
Our Advanced First Aid Training course presents students with some of the most common injuries and illnesses that responders are likely to encounter and provides intermediary instruction on addressing them.
Students can expect to encounter topics such as:
- The role of the first responder
- Basic principles of assessment
- Basic human anatomy
- Principles of lifting, moving, or positioning the sick or injured
- Managing a patient’s airway
- Rescue breathing
- Care for soft-tissue injuries and shock
- Care for muscle and bone injuries
- Care for injuries to the head or spine
- Monitoring patient blood pressure
- Mass-casualty incidents and triage
- Legal and ethical principles of emergency care
- Wellness and safety of first responders
Our 16-hour course is split into two days. In addition to the ASHI’s instruction on care for common types of injuries, our experienced instructors provide specialized training on injuries related to power generation injury, including electrical shock.
Salvation Safety also provides the ASHI basic first aid, CPR, & AED training. Though this is a basic option, students gain the confidence to respond in the event of an emergency.
This course is ideal for a variety of settings and conforms to the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC, and the 2020 AHA and ARC Guidelines Update for First Aid.
The course will provide instruction related to:
- Patient assessment
- Internal/external bleeding
- Opioid overdose
- Heat and cold stress
- Bites and stings
Our comprehensive program will expose students to general medical emergencies and common injuries and provide the necessary skills to address the situation. Upon completion, students will receive first aid, CPR, & AED certification.
Be advised that students are expected to renew their certification annually. It’s good to regularly offer first aid, CPR, & AED training to keep your workers up-to-date.
Power generation stations face unique risks and must satisfy specific safety and workplace regulations. Here’s how Salvation Safety’s on-site first aid, CRP, & AED training can keep your workers safe and help you stay in compliance.
Does OSHA Require First Aid Training and Certification?
As of April 11, 2014, OSHA has set specific standards regarding those who work with exposed power lines or equipment of 50 volts or more. OSHA requires worksites to have employees with training in first aid, including CPR, and that these employees can reach an injured worker in enough time to render life-saving care.
Offering first aid/CPR/AED training can keep your workers safe and help you comply with existing OSHA regulations.
What Are OSHA Requirements for CPR, AED, and First Aid Training?
OSHA requires that employees have adequate access to first aid and medical treatment. For the power generation sector, OSHA requires that workers on a job site be capable of performing basic life-saving care. Because of the danger of electrical shock, OSHA requires that this care include training in CPR.
As of this date, OSHA does not specifically require an AED in first-aid supplies. But a well-run power generation station should include these life-saving devices and ensure that staff members receive the proper first aid, CPR, & AED training.
How Long Does First Aid, CPR, and AED Certification Last?
The standards for CPR, first aid, and AED certification can vary. For example, CPR certification from the American Red Cross is valid for two years.
However, OSHA requires that employees trained in CPR be re-trained if they have not used this skill in the past year. That means that offering first aid, CPR, & AED training can train new employees and ensure that existing employees stay up-to-date.
