Trained Medical Emergency Response Personnel


Medical Emergency Response in Industrial Environments provides medical emergency response team (MERT) personnel with detailed information on how to respond to medical emergencies in the workplace.

Most often, this will only cover the first 15 minutes of the medical emergency, with EMS then arriving to take over patient management and transport. However, the first 15 minutes can be critical.
