Uncontrolled bleeding is a serious emergency

Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as five minutes, and blood loss due to trauma is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States. When care is delayed, even by a few minutes, uncontrolled bleeding can quickly become life-threatening. AVERT can help save lives by teaching you how to act quickly with emergency stop the bleed techniques while waiting for healthcare professionals to arrive.

Is AVERT a workplace requirement?

Everyone has the right to a safe working environment. OSHA does not have a specific standard for workplace violence. However, under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act, or the Act), the extent of an employer's obligation to address workplace violence is governed by the General Duty Clause, which is often interpreted to include protection from workplace violence.

How the AVERT program works

AVERT is delivered in a “blended” training format. This means participants will first receive online training introducing them to the subject and preparing them for the instructor-led session. The instructor-led, in-person session lasts approximately three hours and includes dynamic hands-on training, realistic drills and education with encouraging feedback. Class sizes are limited to 15 people or less per instructor so that all participants will leave the AVERT program having the confidence to respond.
