High Risk Survival Training
*Situational Skills & Techniques
*Risk Exposure Evaluation Skills
*Advanced Work & Safety Skills
Protecting your most valuable asset:
These are skills that have helped us protect our teams over the past 40 years. Our teams have worked in many “seriously” dangerous work sites.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…“
Prevention is often the best way, and staying aware of the many different things going on around is a good place to start. Then if your mind suggests there is a problem, you will have already found a solution.
*Drawing on our intuitive promptings can provide seconds of advanced awareness, and with HRS training and application of these principles can give us advanced notice, and our mental preparedness can give us those saving, split second “reactions.”
In this training we teach skills that help your team stay on there toes, and enable them to have a response or a reaction ready to “prevent” a possible accident, and/or have the proper response .
Reactions are sometimes called “muscle memory” or a reaction that covers much more than muscles. A response is a thought out action for dealing with situation.
A reaction is a “sub routine” stored in our subconscious memory. Once the match is match up, it happens. It is essentially a high tech computer. It is an answer that has already been determined and ready to implement.
By understanding this process and how it works to deal with accidents can help us prevent an escalation into a serious problem.
Quick, using a pencil or pen put these nine dots on a piece of paper. Connect all nine dots with four straight lines, do not lift your pencil from the paper, do not trace over a line, but you can cross over lines. GO!
Answer is at the bottom of this page.
Remember: C, A, B, B, S, S. “C>A>B>B>S>S.” and you will be prepared for a basic medical emergency.
C = circulation. Check a carotid pulse, if there is a pulse the next step is to make sure they are breathing effectively, if not, clear their A = airway – ensure their airway is clear. Then B= breathing make sure they are now breathing. If not start artificial respiration’s… Next is B = bleeding. Check for bleeding and control it with direct pressure, if not able to … , S = Spine. Maintain the natural alignment of the bodies bone structure… S = shock Treat them for shock… and so on.
These few steps can save a life. Even though 9-1-1 brings a fast response-with skilled medical help. Those few minutes, while waiting for other help to arrive, can mean life or death for the injured person.
This may sound strange, but, when it comes to safety, I chose to identify various work and adventure environments by their levels of risk. In a “low-risk” environment (what is generally labelled as “safe,”) I call it a “low-risk area or activity.”
I believe it changes our “Situational Awareness.” It is my objective to have our team, family, employees, etc. maintain a sense of awareness about potential problems, at all times. Yes, relax, have some fun, etc. but maintain a sense of awareness regarding potential problems. Accidents are costly, and not much fun for those who experience them first hand…
“Accidents, that can be serious, and can occur anytime.” But if we are smart, and I believe we are, we will stay “situationally aware,” in an effort o prevent accidents.
Much like we already do, except that we do not label activities, events, and such Safe or Not Safe? Rather the truth is: areas are anywhere from extreme-risk all the way down to low or minimal risk.
This approach has saved my tail, and kept my teams functioning well in many different environments. I am so convinced of its value, I offer a * money-back guarantee.
Often people try to solve the problem by staying in the self imposed barrier of a square (White dotted line).
