Lafayette based company is investing not only in its
employees but also the patients that count on ISS Paramedics.
On Friday October 14, 2011 Industrial Safety Solutions a
division of Lafayette based Industrial Solutions Group L.L.C. along with Superior Training Solutions L.L.C. completed
Louisiana’s first State approved Emergency Medical Technician Paramedic to
Paramedic Transitional Refresher Course.
Due to the ever changing landscape of pre-hospital care the
National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians recently announced changes
in the requirements for all levels of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). The changes are based on emergency medical
services (EMS) evolving role in patient care during acute emergencies, and transfer
of patients from hospital to hospital. In addition it has long been suggested
that Paramedics will become more involved in the clinical aspect of medical
care particularly in remote areas of the country.
Industrial Safety Solutions provides Paramedics to industry whose
operations are located in remote areas or where onsite medical service is
To assure that ISS Paramedics are competent in the knowledge
and skills required by the National Registry, ISS designed its refresher course
to provide material appropriate for review of past requirements, training on
new requirements, and field specific topics. The course is also designed to test
cognitive and psychomotor skills of each participant.
"The course is a
departure from refreshers of the past. We are moving towards developing courses
that are skills based and contain content which is more relevant to the
situations our team experiences while working on remote industrial locations.” Scott Saunier
