Safety Training Q&A

What is safety training?

Safety training refers to courses that educate workers on occupational health and safety standards as established by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). 

These classes provide your employees with the knowledge and skills they need to do their job safely. Additionally, safety training teaches workers how to react in the event of a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, slip-and-fall, or other traumatic injuries.

The safer your workplace is, the less likely you are to experience lawsuits, audits, or inspections. What’s more, research shows that healthy workers tend to be happier, which can boost morale around the office or job site.

What are the different types of safety training?

The team at Industrial Medical Group of Santa Maria offers several types of safety training, including:

CPR training

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving procedure used to jumpstart a heart that’s stopped beating. In the event of a heart attack, performing CPR immediately can double or triple the chances of survival. 

CPR combines chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth breathing to keep a person’s blood circulating. This alone can extend a person’s chances for recovery once trained medical professionals arrive at your workplace.

Industrial Medical Group of Santa Maria Valley offers CPR training courses in English and Spanish. 

First-aid training

First-aid training teaches you how to react to life-threatening medical emergencies quickly. If you know how to provide prompt medical attention to those in need, you can care for people in crises while they wait for the EMTs to arrive.

First-aid training covers a variety of topics, including treatment for:

  • Burns
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • Choking
  • Poisoning
  • Heart attack
  • Seizures
  • Severe Allergic Reactions (Anaphylaxis)

It also provides guidance on what steps to take in the event of neck, head, or spinal cord injuries.

Why is safety training important?

Safety training is important for many reasons. If you’re the owner of a business, safety training allows you to provide a safe and healthy work environment for your team. If you’re an employee, it teaches you to recognize and respond to safety hazards and emergencies. 

Accidents, injuries, and sudden illnesses are unpredictable. Even so, safety training enables you to react quickly and, in turn, save lives.

What type of safety training is right for me?

The type of safety training that’s right for you depends on the type of work you do, your current medical knowledge, and your professional goals. The team at Industrial Medical Group of Santa Maria Valley can answer any questions you have and make recommendations for your needs.
