Are you equipped to provide the necessary first response to a sick or injured employee? When accidents or illness cannot be prevented with the proper safety equipment, it is essential to be able to deliver immediate and on-the-spot care.
According to OSHA, “First aid refers to medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred. It often consists of a one-time short-term treatment.”
First aid in the industrial workplace is a must, and it is required by OSHA. 1910.151 states that “In the absence of an infirmary, clinic or hospital in the near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid. Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.”
