Overview

Working in the maritime industry is dangerous; situations arise from the machines you operate and the environments you work in that put you and your coworkers at risk. You are trained to deal with these visible dangers, but what about the invisible ones? When it comes to bacteria and infections, do you know how to protect yourself? This Video On Demand course provides with you the knowledge to recognize the common infections you may face on the job and prevent their spread.

One of the microbes you may encounter is the Staphylococcus, or Staph, bacteria. An infection may produce symptoms such as rash, bone inflammation, heart valve infection, and pneumonia. While antibiotics can treat most of these infections, there are antibiotic-resistant strains of this bacterium. One of the most dangerous strains is MRSA, or Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. MRSA infections usually start as a bump or series of bumps on the skin, but if left untreated, can cause serious health problems, even death. It is therefore essential to understand the methods of preventing an infection, as well as treating an infection should one occur.

Even though these bacteria are commonplace, there are simple ways in which you can help prevent their spread. Washing your hands, properly cleaning and treating wounds, and maintaining a safe and well maintained work space are all ways to combat the rise of these potentially deadly bacteria. Infetions can spread like wildfire among maritime workers, as you may be sharing workspace as well as living quarters. Use this online training video to learn how to prevent and treat infections, protecting the well-being of yourself and those around you.
