Situational Awareness Training, is advanced safety training, or protecting your most valuable assets “Your Team.”
These are skills that have helped 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 you minds suggests there is a problem, you will have already found a solution.
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.
Reactions are sometimes called “muscle memory” but covers much more than muscles. A response is an answer which is prepared to fit the situation. A reaction is an answer that has already been determined and implemented. By understanding this process and how it works to deal with accidents before the escalate into a serious problem.
but if fate has other plans, we are prepared…
Remember: C, A, B, B, S, S. “CABBSS.” 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 A = airway – ensure their airway is clear. Then B= breathing make sure they are breathing. If not … Next is B = bleeding. Check for bleeding and control it… 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.
