WILDERNESS & BEAR AWARENESS ONLINE COURSE OVERVIEW
For many, wilderness survival is the stuff of movies, but in reality workers across all industries face the potential of a deadly encounter with nature. Cars get stranded, maps get misread, and when those survival situations strike, the best tools for anyone to have are knowledge and preparation. That’s why this Wilderness & Bear Awareness course is designed to give employees the knowledge they need to feel secure any time they venture into the great outdoors.
This course, developed by Safety Health Publishing Inc., emphasizes a stop, think, observe, and plan approach to wilderness survival. After taking this 2.5 hour course, employees will be able to apply this tried and tested procedure for disaster engagement in any scenario, whether lost on the highway or facing a bear attack. Preparing for the unexpected is the only way to react quickly in an emergency situation.
Additionally, employees will gain expert insight from the experts themselves. Twenty-five-year veteran paramedic and firefighter, Martin Lesperance, founder of Safety Health Publishing Inc., has spent over a decade designing safety courses for a broad cross-section of industries. Lesperance’s experience and insight, along with that of other wilderness survival experts, has been condensed for easy consumption so that workers can learn how to deal with different types of animal attacks, how to survive exposure to the elements, and how to get help when stranded.
