  • Safety at Work ?

    There are hundreds of OSHA Safety Topics, and each type of work has its particular needs and requirements, but it boils down to need a formal, written and active safety program.

    DID YOU KNOW? There is an abundance of OSHA training materials in book and CD form that can be used by employers and employees alike to make sure they are up to date on the safety standards and regulations that pertain to their industry and job. Also there are alot of other type of materials such as safety posters and games that can be used to make sure that employees and even employers know how and what safety regulations need to be followed.

    Every company that employs any workers must have an Injury & Illness Prevention Program (IIPP), but furthermore, this program must be active - meaning you can't just print it out and hand it to your new hire and be "done".

    What does it take to be truly OSHA compliant?

    OSHA compliance means actively training workers in safe practices. Many small companies and office environments will simply provide a safety manual and a quiz, while more proactive companies concerned about the health and morale of their staff will offer CPR, First Aid and other relevant safety training in the workplace. Others, too, where they have competent personnel on staff will offer in house course using OSHA compliant Safety training materials to get the job done.

    Whatever your workplace risks and regulations, know that no training is considered OSHA compliant unless the employees are evaluated on their comprehension of the materials. Furthermore, employers must have a competent person available during the training and evaluation that is sufficiently familiar with the topic of training to answer questions and provide further guidance.

  • Accident Investigation

    Yesterday we discussed accidents in general. Today, we'll focus specifically on the importance of accident investigation in the workplace.

    Thousands of accidents occur throughout this country everyday. The failure of people, equipment, supplies, or surroundings to behave or react as expected causes most of them. Accident investigations determine how and why these failures occur. By using the information gained through an investigation, a similar, or perhaps more disastrous, accident may be prevented. It is important to conduct accident investigations with PREVENTION in mind, not just to take down facts and turn them into your administration.

    See our Accident Investigation Safety Training Programs, Posters, and Materials! See our Accident Investigation Safety Training Programs, Posters, and Materials!

    An unfortunate by-product of running a business, especially with any type of heavy machinery is that there is bound to be an accident. It is at this point that learning why the accident occured so there is not a repeat is paramount. That is why it is vital to conduct a thorough Accident Investigation. We have OSHA Safety Training Products to do just this. Our training products on "Accident Investigation" show employees steps that are taken in an accident investigation, and highlight how important it is for employees to fully cooperate with any inquiry. They also point out that while an investigation's focus is to determine the cause of an accident, the overall goal is to prevent similar accidents from happening again. Topics covered include accident investigation, learning about the root cause, the importance of investigative interviews and much more. With booklets, posters and games, learning doesn't have to be a snooze!

    "Accidents will happen". We have all heard that statement before. Unfortunately, sometimes it is true. In spite of our best efforts, things occasionally do go wrong. While many accidents seem to happen for obvious reasons, there may be things that contribute to an accident which are not always apparent. That is why it is vital to conduct a thorough Accident Investigation.

    Our training products on "Accident Investigation" show employees steps that are taken in an accident investigation, and highlight how important it is for employees to fully cooperate with any inquiry. They also point out that while an investigation's focus is to determine the cause of an accident, the overall goal is to prevent similar accidents from happening again. The topics covered in the products include:

    - The goals of an accident investigation.
    - Securing an accident scene.
    - "Root-cause" analysis.
    - The importance of investigative interviews.
    - Assisting in an accident investigation.
    - Reporting the "near misses".
    - The role of policies, equipment and training on accident prevention.
    - and more.

  • Plan ahead

    Every business is required by OSHA to have a formal, written and active safety program.

    An easy way to show that your program is "active" is to have live safety instruction (and records thereof.)

    Whatever safety training requirements you may have for your business, American CPR Training™ offers these topics in a fin informative, inexpensive, and time saving manner - and best of all, we come to your location and training your personnel on-site which saves you the additional travel time and expense of sending your employees out for training.

    We work with many of our clients to schedule their training classes for the entire year in January. This way their Managers and Staff can plan ahead to assure they will be available on the scheduled dates. While CPR, First Aid, AED, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Forklift Operator Safety (OSHA Industrial Lift Truck Safety) are our most popular topics, we teach over 100 OSHA Safety courses for our clientele across the US and the planet.

    training-it-is-what-we-do

    While the bulk of what we do is live, instructor-led training, many of our clients also have designated "competent person" trainers on staff that can teach some of these other OSHA safety topics, too. To aid in this, we offer some excellent OSHA safety training materials, complete with Instructor guide, student handbooks, DVDs or CDs and the paperwork necessary to properly document the training for your records.

  • CPR Renewal

    We often get asked...

    Does American CPR Training™ offer a CPR Renewal class?

    Clients and Instructors alike ask this question - and the simple answer is: There is no need!

    TwoRescuerAdultOur Program is very different from the other National certifying bodies, and you will find that it is much more flexible and inexpensive, so you need not be concerned about some of these issues.

    Since our accelerated curriculum in only 2-2.5 hours, there is no need for a separate “review course” for people that are already certified. Our regular class is shorter than most “reviews” with full curriculum, and hands on, as well as full materials at a fraction of the cost.

    Repeat student would complete the entire course every 2 years... Studies show that CPR skills are forgotten after 6-12 Months, we know many students begin to forget them the moment they walk out the door! Full re-training can be much more effective for long-term retention.

    Our full curriculum Adult, Child & Infant CPR Class Student Pack includes: Student Training Handbooks, 10 Student Course Evaluation, A.B.C. vs C.A.R.E. Insert, C.A.R.E. CPR Reminder Pen with CPR Steps, Student Practice CPR Kit, Certification Card.

    Instructors can purchase these CPR Materials in 10 packs for a ridiculously low cost (less than just cards from most other groups)  and Clients save both class fees and student (salary) times with our ½ the Time, ½ the Price, and TWICE the Fun!™ program! Get a quote today!

    Instructors:

    One of the features our Instructors like most about our program (other than low cost and Instructor flexibility in presentation decisions) is that our Instructors have the cards in advance of the classes – so they can be issued to students upon completion, rather than issued and mailed or distributed later. In order for you to obtain certification cards for your students you would purchase the class student packs before your classes. Say you were going to teach CPR you can go to our http://americancpr.com website and purchase our Adult, Child, & Infant C.A.R.E CPR™ Class Student Pack (http://americancpr.com/adult-child-infant-c-a-r-e-cprtm-class-student-10-pack-american-cpr-training.html.) You then would send your completed, signed roster copies to us via scan or mail after the classes and we log in your Instructor files for later card verification should anyone need confirmation of certification.

  • A nation built on dignity

    Our Nation was begun by oppressed individuals fleeing persecution in the form of religious oppression and unfair work practices. The sought the freedom to worship (or not) as they felt was right for them, and to earn the benefits they deserved for their labor.

    This struggle continues today with huge battles of belief (and sorry folks, this isn't just foreigners - there's an awful lit of prejudice, proselytizing, and religious injustice here at home, too) and efforts toward safer work environments and fair wages.

    President Nixon (yes, Nixon) gave us great tools by establishing OSHA and the EPA, but workers and employers need to work together to keep the workplace safe and productivity high. Injuries in the workplace harm the companies as well as the workers. A safe workplace begins with awareness of hazards and knowledge of safe work practices. This means active and quality workplace safety training.

  • Why CPR?

    CompressionOnlyCPR1What does CPR stand for?

    • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

     

    What is CPR?

    • CPR is a procedure where you try to restart someone’s breathing or heart by manually compressing the person’s chest and also by breathing into a person’s mouth which will fill air into their lungs.

     

    How is CPR important in your workplace?

    • Getting employees trained in giving CPR will ensure a safer workplace. Learning CPR is not only for offices, giving CPR training should be mandatory in every establishment. Think of it this way... what is more important to you? Your business or the people that are working hard to make your business successful? In conclusion, the difference between knowing CPR and not knowing CPR could be a life or death for a close friend, coworker and or loved one.
