Spaces are still available in the final first aid training session, scheduled for Thursday, June 28, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in 1018 Kaiser.
The four-hour basic first aid class is designed to provide UCOP employees with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to manage a medical emergency until advanced help is available.
Topics covered include bleeding control; managing shock; head, neck and back injuries; burns; stroke; diabetic emergencies; seizures; asthma; severe allergic reactions; poisoning; bites and stings; and environmental emergencies.
This class is sponsored by UCOP’s Office of Risk Management and taught by Carol S. McMillan, an emergency medical technician certified by the American Heart Association, American Red Cross and the National Safety Council.
UCOP’s first aid training program, established several years ago in Oakland-based locations, has provided many employees with valuable training. A first aider can prevent death and permanent disfigurement by knowing what to do and what not to do in an emergency.
