This Health and safety training program is one of four modules created specifically for hospital personnel. It provides detailed instructions regarding steps to take when coming in contact with contaminated patients.
Any incident involving mass casualties from a hazardous material or an event involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD) would place healthcare staff and facilities at risk of contamination. The "Contamination" training module teaches learners the basics of contamination threats, chemical agents, biological agents, and radiological and IED devices. Content then introduces other possible incidents and first receiver training necessary for hospital employees.
This four part training program follows JCAHO's accreditation standards for decontamination and emergency planning; and meets the requirements of OSHA for healthcare personnel to be certified at the Operations Level.
