When you work in the field, you encounter innumerable threats to your safety. Staying safe in the field is vital to your health and the health of the people you serve. To respond quickly, you must prepare for a dangerous situation before it occurs. The purpose of this course is to teach human service workers how to stay safe by using safety techniques while working in the field, delivering services, and conducting meetings at client residences. The safety techniques you will learn can be applied to a variety of settings; however, most of the real-life examples in this course focus on visits to client homes. You will learn tips for how to prepare for, travel to, and conduct site visits while keeping safety in mind, including how to manage critically dangerous situations. This course is appropriate for all staff who make routine home or other field location healthcare visits to persons in community settings. You will gain helpful tools you can use that supplement your agency’s policies regarding safety in the field. Using real-life simulated examples, you will have an opportunity to test your safety awareness skills throughout this course so that you can apply them when you need them most in your own setting. NOTE: While this course uses terms such as “healthcare,” “worker,” and “site visit” throughout, it is intended for a variety of settings and healthcare workers.
