The third video in our Micotil Safety Course will cover what to do in case of accidental self-injection with Micotil. While Micotil is a powerful tool against BRD, safety is imperative, as accidental human injections have been associated with fatalities, so rapid action is required.
Swift action is required in the case of accidental self-injection. This module will take you through necessary steps to follow if self-injection occurs.
We hope that the video above has outlined what steps to take in case of accidental self-injection. We recommend you download the PPT presentation for reviewing purposes and if you wish to study it in the future.
Now that you’ve viewed the module video and downloaded the PowerPoint, we’re going to test your knowledge. Think you know your stuff?
