Can anyone be a first Aider?
There are qualities that make a really good first aider:

Someone who can stay calm in a crisis
Someone who is caring and kind
Someone that has no (known) problem of seeing/dealing with blood and body fluids
Someone who is there when needed
Someone who is trained and up to date

Think about the hours and locations you have employees and consider whether they can access emergency first aid quickly and easily.
