First Aid Friday

posted by Victory Safety    |   April 7, 2017 15:38

Spring is around the corner and with it's beautiful weather, spring brings it's bees and other insects. Here is a helpful tip to help if you are ever stung by a bee or other insect and the stinger is still in the skin.

 

Did you know you are supposed to scrape the stinger from the skin as opposed to pulling or plucking it out? This is because some stingers have a sac filled with venom. When you pull the stinger out you may press/squeeze on that sac causing more venom to be transferred into the bloodstream. So instead grab a card (ie. health card) and scrape the stinger off.

 

Keep this helpful tip handy this spring and summer!
