Emergency first aid at work refers to the immediate assistance provided to a person who is injured or falls ill at the workplace until professional medical help is available. It involves the application of basic first aid techniques and protocols to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery. The primary objectives of emergency first aid at work are to assess the situation, provide initial care, and ensure the individual's safety and well-being.
