National Safety Council Launches June National Safety Month With Free Training
Date:5/26/2009

ITASCA, Ill., May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Safety Council will launch its 2009 June National Safety Month with free enrollment in two popular online training courses, June 1-7 only:

  • "Alive at 25(R) Parent Program," for parents of teen drivers, and
  • "First Aid and CPR with AED," basic training for adults.

The "Alive at 25 Parent Program" is an engaging, science-based course that educates parents about the risks teen drivers face. Through this two-hour online program, parents will learn how to reinforce basic driving skills and good decision-making that can help teens become safe and responsible drivers. Registration is free June 1-7 only at www.parentprogram25.com/NSM. (Click on "New Student" and enter "NSM" as an access code. Users will have 30 days to complete the program.)

"First Aid and CPR with AED" is a three-hour online course that can make the difference between life and death. Every year 1.1 million people in the U.S. have a heart attack and about half of them die. Many of these people could be saved if help came faster. Through this course, offered in conjunction with National CPR/AED Week, users will learn the latest method of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), as well as how to help a person who is choking. First aid topics include bleeding, wound care, shock, burns, serious injuries, fractures and sprains. To register for free June 1-7 only, visit: www.nscfirstaid.com/nationalCPRweek.

Both courses are available all year, with a registration fee, at nsc.org.

National Safety Month is the NSC's annual campaign to educate people about some of our nation's leading causes of preventable deaths and injuries. It is also a great way for the NSC's thousands of member businesses to promote safety among their employees and employee families.

The National Safety Council (www.nsc.org) saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads, through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
