Occupational Safety & Health Administration at Clemente Training is TOUGH!
Yet, our dedicated future nurses, paramedics and doctors of the Allied Health International Baccalaureate Career Pathway Programme have conquered step ONE for future certification! As we all know, health & safety of our patients and our staff is our number ONE priority in the health field—and to prove true to this, our wildcats have learned all about laboratory safety procedures. Check them out!
OSHA was founded in 1971 by the United States Department of Labor in an effort to reduce on-the-job mortality rates and injuries. Our future healthcare providers here at Clemente very well know the importance of this effort and have begun, if not completed, their training and have become OSHA-Certified. Among the many perks, we can now add this certification to our professional accolades and, of course, show off our safety-skills in the medical lab!
Many of the students who have completed this certification program have begun specialty training. For example, Junior Wildcat Kate Arzuaga has already initiated her Phlebotomy (just a fancy word for blood-draw specialist) training. Her dedication and skills learned in Allied Health have earned her the lead position in our medical lab. Kate is now ready to begin Phase II of training which will include chemistry of venous blood sampling, vacutainer methodology, hypodermics, Intravenous setting, sharps training, and hemo-microscopy.
Hard-work is definitely paying off for these IB learners. If you have any questions or want to check us out during one of our geeked-out lab sessions, please visit our website for information on who to get in contact with to experience it for yourself. You just might be in for an OSHA-certified, knowledge-filled SAFE good ol’ time!
