A nail goes into a hand. A beam hits a contractor in the back and knocks the wind out of him. One false step and someone falls off a roof. Contractors know that every day might be the day. So, how do you prepare? It’s human nature to say, “It won’t happen to me,” or “My job is safe.” But, are you really prepared?
Did you know OSHA requires that an employer must ensure prompt first aid treatment for injured employees? This can be done either by providing a trained first aid provider at the worksite or by ensuring that emergency treatment services are within reasonable proximity of the worksite. The basic purpose of these standards is to assure that adequate first aid is available in the critical minutes between when an injury occurs and the availability of physician or hospital care for the injured employee. Since not all worksites can be within reasonable proximity to emergency care, First Aid Training is essential.
