Injuries happen in many ways in the workplace and public spaces. Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma.  In the same way fire extinguishers and automatic defibrillators are located for public use across university buildings, bleeding control kits and stations will be located for any immediate responder to access in the event of an emergency.

National STOP THE BLEED day is March 31st. To coincide with this national day of awareness and training , the University will be installing bleeding control kits and providing training to any interested  staff.  STOP THE BLEED training is a 60 minute course that trains citizens to perform life saving skills like tourniquet application and wound packing.
