MRSA and Staph Prevention for the Oil and Gas Industry

Moxie Media 33 minutes

This dynamic program focuses on preventive techniques for avoiding MRSA & Staph outbreaks and also teaches crews how to recognize the signs of serious infections. It was developed with leading experts in the medical field and intended specifically for oil and gas personnel. It also teaches crew members how to recognize the signs of serious infections before they become life-threatening and respond to both individual cases and outbreaks.

On a rig/platform, prevention and quick response are essential because infections can spread quickly in close quarters. It is especially important to respond quickly to MRSA and other dangerous Staph infections. For less virulent infections such as colds and flu, prevention is also essential and cost-effective. Countless man hours are lost each year to infections that could have been prevented.
Topics Include:
Introduction to MRSA and Infection Prevention.
Recognition and Treating MRSA and Other Staph Infections.
Prevention Through Personal Hygiene and First Aid.
Prevention Through Good Housekeeping.
Preventing an Outbreak.
