First Aid While on the Occidental Campus

Minor first aid is the responsibility of each team. Each team/school should maintain and have available a first aid kit for minor injuries the day of the Science Olympiad. Simple interventions and remedies are the responsibility of the school sponsoring the team and coaches should be prepared to respond to these minor needs. It is expected that each school maintain medical release forms and authorizations as required by the individual schools and districts and that coaches follow the protocols of the individual school districts.

In the event an injury requiring medical attention, the coach of the team should notify Occidental College Campus Safety at 323-259-2599.

The Science Olympiad has a long history of safety and we appreciate all that you do to insure that your students are healthy, safe, and supervised.
