CHEM SAFETY TRAINERS:
We’ve all been teaching & learning STOP! DROP! ROLL! for years and there are lots of training materials & images available to work with. My current favorite (for eye-catching & cute) is one with a Dalmatian hound. (List won’t let me attach pictures.)
I recently realized this instruction is more useful to those nearby than to the person on fire. It seems unlikely a victim with clothing on fire will remember anything (his/her clothing is on fire!!), but the nearest workers/students have a real chance to respond.. Is there any research on whether all this training has actually paid off in victim response?
“STOP your co-worker! DROP your colleague! ROLL your classmate!” isn’t as catchy, so I’m looking for images that show another person stopping, dropping & rolling the victim. A quick search returned only one, from India. If you have (or are aware of) others, please let me know.
