IOHSA is an association made up of licensed professionals and is not affiliated with or endorsed by the American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Committee or the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) or their member organizations.
In no event shall IOHSA be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages, or damages for loss of profits, revenue, data or use, incurred by your or any third party, whether in contract or tort, arising from your access to, or use of, the services provided through IOHSA or our website, even if IOHSA.org was advised that such damages were likely or possible. You acknowledge and agree that IOHSA.org and its officers, directors, shareholders, agents, employees, and representatives are harmless from any liability whatsoever, including but not limited to any direct, indirect, consequential or punitive damages arising out of or relating to your access to use any of this website or our approved course material, any liability for damage or injury to your or any other person’s self, property or business, any claim based on any inclusion or omission in the course material or on this website. Using this website or course material from IOHSA is done solely at your own risk.
Warning! Do not attempt or practice the course skills on anyone that does not need them. Performing these procedures when they are not needed could result in serious injury or death. DECISIONS CONCERNING FIRST AID AND CPR MAY BE LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS. SOME FIRST AID DECISIONS AND PROCEDURES INVOLVE THE RISK OF SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Successful completion of IOHSA courses does not guarantee future real-life performance of the student. Performance of any skills learned may not save everyone even when skills are properly performed. Be sure to obtain permission from the person in need of emergency first aid (or the parent or guardian of a child) before attempting to render first aid. If your workplace role (part of your job function) includes responder team duties, this may not be necessary. Consult your workplace responder protocols regarding obtaining permission to provide care. If the person in need of assistance is unresponsive or unable to communicate, you may assume he or she has consented to assistance. If you suspect serious injury or illness, obtain emergency assistance immediately by dialing 911 or your designated emergency number, or seeking any available onsite & close-by advanced medical professional assistance. Do not put yourself or others at risk when attempting to provide care or when providing care to others. Do not move the person that is injured, unless absolutely necessary; such as to move the victim away from hazards to avoid any further harm or injury to the victim. IOHSA courses should not be viewed by children or adults who will not fully understand the course content and their potential consequences.
The certificate provided by IOHSA does not represent, warrant or guaranty that the student is properly equipped to perform skills such as CPR or First Aid assistance. IOHSA’s role is to provide education to the student using generally accepted science guidelines and professional standards. IOHSA does not warrant, represent or guaranty, either explicitly or implicitly, that its certification will comply with the user’s or any third party’s requirements or standards. It is the student’s sole responsibility to ensure compliance with the requirements and standards of any regulatory or licensing body or employer.
The language of all parts of this agreement shall in all cases be construed to be as a whole, according to its fair meaning, and not strictly for or against any party. This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida without regard to conflicts of law rules.
If any provision or provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with the law of jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall remain intact and not be affected or impaired thereby.
