Title: first aid
Body:

First aid means treating yourself or having someone at work treat you. Some examples are:

  • cleaning minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches
  • treating a minor burn
  • applying bandages, a cold compress, or an ice bag
  • putting on a splint at your workplace

First aid also includes changing a bandage at a follow-up appointment if this does not lead to further treatment.
