Halloween Leads to Increased chance of Choking!

October 10, 2008

Kids shoveling huge handfuls of candy after trick-or-treating can lead to choking, but do you know how to help in case of this emergency?  Here are the steps for Concious Choking:

If you encounter a conscious, choking individual that is coughing, encourage continued coughing. If the victim is unable to cough, speak, or breathe, complete the following:

  • Send someone to call 9-1-1
  • Lean person forward and give 5 back blows with heel of your hand.
  • Give 5 quick abdominal thrusts by placing the thumbside of your fist against the middle of the victim’s abdomen, just above the navel. Grab your fist with the other hand.
  • Repeat until the object the person is choking on is forced out and person breathes or coughs on his or her own.

Feeling the Economic Crunch?

September 30, 2008

As we’re all well aware, the economy is not doing as well as we’d like. Many of us are wondering if we should pull out of the market, should we take all our money out of banks, are we going to have a job tomorrow. All valid questions and worth having an answer for!

Well I can’t tell you what you should do about money, but what I can say is that this is the best time to strengthen your resume and become an asset for your company. Create job security by acquiring more education and training to help you further your career! You can start with getting certified in CPR/AED and First Aid. Classes start at $52 and if you register online, you save 10%.

Are you a business and not sure what the future holds for your company? Did you know that according to OSHA, studies have shown a $4 to $6 return for every dollar invested in health and safety, with improvements in costs associated with absenteeism, Workers’ Compensation claims and productivity.

The economy may be tough, but by taking the proper steps and getting trained, you can overcome these tough times. Call Today, (815) 963-8471 or visit our site to find out more about training in the workplace!

DID YOU KNOW: We can train you on CPR/AED & First Aid at your House?

September 10, 2008

The title of this post pretty much says it all.  We CAN train you in First, CPR/AED at your house, church, backyard, or anywhere else you can find some space.  The Red Cross will send out an Instructor, Books, Manikins, and all the supplies you may need.  The only thing you need is: A minimum of 8 people and place for us to conduct the class!  It’s really that simple!

This is a great thing for new mothers and fathers, for church groups, after school organization, or a Club.  But the possibilities are truly endless!

Our classes start at $50/participant.  So call me, Rahil, today at (815) 963-8471
