First Aid and CPR tip

posted by Victory Safety    |   November 25, 2014 20:23

Early recognition of a cardiovascular emergency is critical in survival of, and minimization of tissue death in a cardiovascular emergency. Do you know how to recognize conditions such as heart attack and/or stroke? During a heart attack a person may experience chest pain/ difficulty breathing, pain in the neck jaw or shoulder, abdominal or lower back pain, whereas with a stroke a person may experience a sudden severe unusual headache, blurred vision, weakness or paralysis on one or both sides of the body and difficulty speaking. Over the years one thing I've learned is emergencies are not always how the "text book" says they're supposed to be. To learn more about medical conditions register today for a standard first aid and CPR training at Victory Safety and Training.

Standard First Aid and CPR Tip

posted by Victory Safety    |   October 20, 2014 14:59

Burns-From my experience are some of the most painful injuries that may occur, not only because of initial pain but pain throughout the entire healing process because of changing of dressings etc.. First things first when a burn first occurs rinse it under cool running water for at least 10-15 minutes (See MSDS's for Chemical burns as water may make a chemical burn worse). Cover the burn loosely with a non-stick dressing (preferably specific burn dressings) and Always call 911 if a child has been burned, the burn blisters, affects more than one area of the body, covers hands, feet, joints or face, or if underlying tissues are visible. This information is thought but not guaranteed to be accurate. Topics such as this are covered in a Standard First Aid and CPR program.

Confined Space Entry Tip

posted by Victory Safety    |   September 23, 2014 14:15

Did you know that in North America approximately 66% of confined space fatalities are to would be rescuers? Many people ask how does this happen, and well you must ask yourself what would you do if you seen a friend or loved one or co-worker unconscious in a confined space such as a grain bin? Most people want to try help out but unfortunately their good intentions often turn into a fatal situation. They get hurt not because their "not smart" but because they can't prepare for something they don't know is there. This is an excellent video that can give you an idea as to how these situations arise and stresses the importance of proper training and pre planning. Warning: this video does have some coarse language

If you cant access the video attachment just look up "Precious Time" on you tube

First Aid tip - Stroke

posted by Victory Safety    |   September 10, 2014 10:12

Suspecting a stroke can be a very scary situation but early detection can great help a person out who may be suffering from a stroke. If you notice somebody suffering from a sudden severe headache, weakness or paralysis on 1 or both sides of the body, blurred vision or speech difficulties the person may be suffering from a TIA (sometimes referred to as a mini-stroke) or stroke then get them medical help ASAP. If a person is suffering from a stroke, the longer help is delayed the more damage could potentially occur. Also think F ace (look for signs a facial droop) A rm (look for arm weakness on 1 or both sides) S peech (slurred speech) T ime (get help as quick as possible) First Aid tip of the day from your friends at Victory Safety and Training

Drug and Alcohol Testing

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 29, 2014 21:45

Why am I hearing about more and more work sites requiring Drug and Alcohol Testing? Let us ask this question think about someone you really care about right now, ok, now picture that person in a safety sensitive position on their workplace maybe working at heights, operating equipment just driving to and from work. So in that situation what if they or somebody they work with was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The risk in doing that job just went way up, and that is one of the major reasons Drug and alcohol testing is required just to get onto many sites. If its a requirement on a site you're going onto let us help. With DOT compliant Drug and Alcohol Testing available just give us a call and we can most likely get your test done today.

H2S Alive, what's this course all about?

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 26, 2014 12:33

This program is pretty much an automatic requirement for anyone entering the workforce in oil & gas, mining, and many other types of workplaces. H2S (hydrogen sulphide) can develop in many areas as organic matter decomposes. This gas is deadly at low concentrations and accumulates in low lying areas since it is heavier than air. H2S has an odor of rotten eggs, however, when it reaches deadly levels you would not be able to smell it. Learn more about this deadly gas through an Enform H2S Alive program available at Victory Safety and Training in Saskatoon or at your location if you have a group.

First Aid and CPR, what are the levels about?

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 22, 2014 16:54

You might be wondering what level of CPR you need for your work site (or potential work sites). 1st of all it is always best to see what potential employers want prior to registering for a program. Standard First Aid is the 2 day OH&S compliant first aid program which includes CPR and AED Training and is the standard on most work sites. So next question, what level of CPR do I need? Well if your worksite consists of primarily adults (ie. an oil field job), you would most likely be fine with CPR A, If there is a possibility of working with children (ie, school, day care etc.), you would most likely need CPR C, but if you are a health care provider (ie. paramedic, nurse etc.), you would probably need an HCP level CPR program. All of these options and much more available at Victory Safety and Training.
September First Aid classes available in Saskatoon every Monday and Tuesday throughout September as well as a couple weekend classes on September 5th and 6th & September 19th and 20th.

Standard First Aid and CPR

posted by Victory Safety    |   August 20, 2014 23:20

You just never know when you will need to utilize the skills obtained in a first aid program. If somebody started complaining of chest pain right where you are and suddenly stopped breathing, would you know what to do. Or if a loved one started choking and couldn't breathe, what would you do.  Having spent time working in EMS and having children at home I couldn't tell you  how many times I have had to give first  aid but no situation stands out more than when my little girl had a severe obstruction in her airway and I had to utilize the first aid for choking skills I had obtained through the many first aid programs as well as EMS training I had received. A couple simple back blows knocked the obstruction loose and her airway was cleared.  All the time  and effort I had put into training was rewarded right there. Don't get caught not knowing what to do, the skills obtained In a standard first aid class are simple yet effective and will help ensure should you encounter an emergency, that the person suffering the problem is much more likely to make it through safely because you (a trained first aider) are there to help. Standard first aid is one of the many programs  available at Victory Safety and Training to help ensure you and your loved ones make it through your day safe.
