  • Leader Notes
    Thank you for attending this informational seminar about preparing your business for pandemic flu. Here’s our agenda:
    Read slide.
  • Leader Notes
    Why should your business plan for pandemic flu?
    Although pandemic flu hasn’t received the full blown media attention that it did a few years ago, health experts continue to stress the importance of preparing communities for it.
    Pandemic flu preparedness efforts have been largely focused on large businesses that have resources readily available to develop plans to help them deal with this sort of event. But small businesses are particularly at risk for disruptions resulting from a a pandemic flu event because they have limited capacity and fewer resources as compared to larger businesses.

  • What would you consider to be your organizations overall readiness, your employees individual overall readiness to continue operations or continue to work during an emergency or disaster?
  • A well-stocked first aid kit is a handy thing to have. To be prepared for emergencies, keep a first aid kit in your home and in your car.
    Carry a first aid kit with you or know where you can find one. Find out the location of first aid kits where you work. First aid kits come in many shapes and sizes.

    In addition to preparing workplaces and individuals for emergencies such as pandemic flu, the Red Cross also offers a wide range of training options to prepare your employees for potentially life-threatening emergencies that may require CPR or first aid.
    Review slide.
    “And the best part is that you choose what training you need.”

    Review slide.
  • Leader Notes
    The First Aid/CPR/AED Program has two tracks to make training more relevant to your audience. You can choose from courses designed for a workplace environment or a schools and community environment. Each track has participant materials with content and rescue scenarios that are specific to that audience.
    Our programs are also modular in design so you can design a training program that meets the specific needs of your organization. Choose only what you need, when you need it.
  • Injury Control Modules – 1 hour modules added to a course
    Booklets to provide to staff
    Or as an add on to a course

    • 1. American Red Cross Hugh Harrison Preparing Your Organization
    • 2. Agenda • Emergency Preparedness • Anatomy of a First Aid Kit • AED, Automated External Defibrillator • Q & A
    • 3. Why Plan ? Why Prepare? • How prepared is your organization to function under emergency/disaster related conditions?
    • 4. The importance of preparedness • Preparedness is important for any emergency. – Being prepared is the key to the best outcome • Good planning – Allows your organization to continue to provide essential goods and/or services during times of disaster and emergencies. • Train employees and provide appropriate and adequate supplies for use during emergencies and disasters • Cross train employees • Investigate other options (retirees, summer interns, volunteers etc.) • Plan with suppliers and customers
    • 5. Why Plan & Prepare? No Progress Limited Progress Moderate Progress Substantial Progress Objective Achieved – One component of planning is having the appropriate supplies in an emergency…
    • 6. A Key Component of Safety First Aid Kit •OSHA •ANSI
    • 7. OSHA Standard Part B of the OSHA First Aid Standard (29 CFR 1910.151) requires that first aid supplies be adequate and available. OSHA does not require specific types of first aid supplies, since the type and amount of supplies is dependent upon the types of injuries that are likely to occur in a specific workplace, but OSHA does cite ANSI standard Z308.1 as an example of the minimum requirements for the contents of a first aid kit.
    • 8. ANSI Standard American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standard Z308.1 outlining the minimum supplies for a workplace first aid kit was recently revised and approved in May 2009. The revised standard (Z308.1-2009) expands the required first aid kit supply list to include a first aid guide.
    • 9.
