Employee Safety Trainings Package – From Redwoods

We want all employees to embrace safety in a true sense of keeping ourselves and others safe at all times. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. A safety mindset requires an organization to instill a culture of safety among all employees. This means not only creating policies but making sure your practices meet your policies every single time.

Impetigo: What Does It Look Like, and What Should You Do?

John presented to the camp health center begrudgingly, after his counselor requested he get a blister on his heel looked at by one of the nurses. The nurse at health check happened to be a new grad without much on-the-ground knowledge of superficial skin lesions. She looked at John’s heel and noticed a circular, red lesion without obvious exudate or oozing, and identified the lesion as a blister. She decided a foot soak, bandage, and antibacterial ointment would do the trick. After completing her treatment, John popped his sneaker back onto his foot and returned to camp life.
