Due to increased prevention measures, most people are unaware of how to handle accidents by administering effective first aid practices. Since enhanced mitigation practices, especially in workplaces, are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to prevent accidents, individuals do not understand or learn how to administer first aid effectively.
