Professional drivers have their vehicle as their workplace environment. When you consider that they spend much of their day in their  vehicle and cover many miles. In this respect, it is very important for drivers to have training on providing Emergency First Aid. They may  come across road accidents, or may be involved in one themselves. Where there are casualties following a road traffic collision, it is important that the correct actions are taken in order to preserve life and prevent deterioration before the emergency services arrive on scene. Having first aid training provides the skills and confidence to make a difference.
