BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota Safety Council is taking its job to teach emergency preparedness seriously, and educating will be so much easier with the opening of the new safety training campus.
The 5,000 square foot Andeavor Hands-On Training Lab is a multi-faceted site designed to protect workers from injury.
A training tower mirrors real-life conditions for extricating victims on the job.
You can also self-protection techniques from a former law enforcement officer.
The campus offers CPR and AED training.
"It's important, because sometimes safety is taken for granted, there's complacencies. And, there's all sorts of reasons that, ultimately, people choose to not be safe," said NDSC Executive Director Chuck Claimont.
This was just phase one of the NDSC's plans for Bismarck. Phase two will include another indoor training facility right next door in the next three to five years.
