“Injuries and illnesses kill about 2.2 million people in the world each year“, ILO.
In the U.S., about 1/3 of all injuries and 20% of injury deaths occur at home.
Safe practices at work, home, and play can prevent many injuries, illnesses, and deaths. However, once injury or sudden illness has occurred, effective first aid can make the difference between a rapid or prolonged recovery, a temporary or permanent disability, and even a life or death.
