You are familiar with the obvious threats working in the oil and gas industry present; the complex machines you operate in a remote environment may lend to situations putting you or your coworkers in harm’s way. As a professional, you learn to protect yourself and those around you from these noticeable threats; but what if there are significant hazards to your well-being so small they are unseen? When it comes to bacteria and infections, do you know how to protect yourself? Gain the preparedness needed to recognize the common infections you may face on the job, as well as learn how to prevent the spread of those infections with this online video training.

Among the more basic health hazards we face are infections from the Staphylococcus, or Staph, bacteria. Effects of this bacterium may include rash, bone inflammation, heart valve infection, and pneumonia. The antibiotic-resistant strain of Staph, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), further complicates things. These infections start small, usually as a bump or series of bumps on the skin, but if left untreated, cause serious problems. This bacterium can be fatal, so it is critical to understand not only the methods of preventing an infection, but also treating an infection should one occur.

Even though these bacteria are commonplace, there are simple ways in which you can help prevent their spread. Washing your hands, properly cleaning and treating wounds, and maintaining a safe and well maintained work space are all help combat the rise of these potentially deadly bacteria. With this safety training, you will learn not only how to better protect yourself and keep yourself healthy, but also how to keep others healthy as well.
