Dear EMS1 Member,
Welcome to the first EMS Safety newsletter, where we’ll tackle the hazards EMS providers face and how to prevent injuries on the job. EMS providers are a target for violence, not just from an active assailant, but also from family members and bystanders on scene, as well as agitated, altered or under-the-influence patients.
When EMS providers voice their concerns about workplace safety issues and their agencies respond, it fosters engagement and commitment, while decreasing the frequency and severity of workplace injuries.
In this newsletter, sponsored by Stryker, learn how EMS providers and leadership can collaborate to identify and mitigate the risks of abuse and assault during an emergency response.
As this is a new format for us, your feedback is important. Please share this newsletter and email your suggestions for articles, tips and resources to firstname.lastname@example.org.
