We put together a dandy employee safety training program and updated all our policies and procedures. Fire, falls, infection control, and basic first aid are all covered, as well as CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver for choking or other breathing or cardiac events. We are set to prevent most emergencies, and deal with them calmly and with best practices, should they occur.
