First aid is the emergency care given in response to an injury or sudden illness before professional emergency medical treatment is available. A qualified first-aid provider in any given occupation should be trained to deliver initial medical emergency procedures and to use limited equipment to perform an assessment and implement treatment while waiting for professional emergency medical service (EMS) personnel.
This course will provide the knowledge necessary to implement a comprehensive first aid training program and ensure employees are trained to handle occupational hazards relevant to their respective industries.

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Workplace First Aid Overview. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:
(a) Each employer -
(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.
A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.
