In this episode of 'CPR 211 Igniting Workplace Safety', Lena, a transition coordinator at YesPhilly High School, takes us on a journey through the impact of incorporating safety training into the curriculum. With a focus on serving out-of-school youth aged 16 to 20 who need credit recovery, Lena explains how Act 158 law requires graduating students to obtain industry-recognized credentials or evidence of post-secondary readiness. To meet these requirements, the school has added a range of essential training, including CPR, babysitting certification, infant CPR, mental health first aid, OSHA 10 construction, and child abuse training. Lena shares her personal experience undergoing the safety training and the overwhelmingly positive reactions from students. Join us as we delve into the challenges of implementing new requirements and gain valuable advice for those struggling. Lena emphasizes the importance of reaching out for help, collaborating with others, and thinking beyond the current circumstances. We also highlight the significance of CPR training in empowering individuals to save lives, especially in communities where help may be delayed. Tune in to discover a special T-shirt that promotes the message that even a shirt can save a life. Get ready to be inspired and motivated to make a difference in your community!
