"Conduct REGULAR inspections - to assess this it would required to show evidence of doing this on several occasions - surely the ability to check stock in a first aid room or kit could be effectively demonstrated once"

CPR WTF?

"This unit is about managing and implementing first aid in the workplace. It is not designed to be focused on a single first aid event, ie CPR. It should be legal responsibilities around the provision of first aid and not just CPR, so it is alright to not do it for a patient with a cut but cpr me must be aware of consent as my patient might say no while they are unconscious."
