Overview

If you have ever been exposed to poison oak, ivy, or sumac, you are already well aware of the unpleasant experience one has when coming into contact with one of these plants. The primary reaction is caused by an allergy to a resin these plants produce; the resin is so toxic exposure to only one billionth of a gram is enough to cause a rash, and only one quarter of an ounce is enough to cause a reaction in everyone on earth. Because poisonous plants, in one form or another, can be found throughout the United States, it is important to know how to recognize them, how to treat yourself should contact occur, as well as the proper methods for avoiding these plants in the first place. Learn this information through the material presented in this Video On Demand training.

A number of workers in different jobs can come into contact with poisonous plants, which makes it even more important to have all the necessary information on how to avoid them. The best way to avoid these plants, and the unpleasant accompanying rash, is to be able to recognize the plants themselves. Use this online training video to prevent exposure to poisonous plants and learn how to deal with an exposure should one occur.
