The one health and safety appointment that could save your employee's life

by , 17 September 2014
When workplace accidents lead to fatalities and serious injuries, you need to ensure your employees get the help they need. But sometimes, when you call the paramedics and ambulances to an accident scene, they can't get the quick enough.

There could be a road block, bad traffic or all the ambulances could be busy.

That's why you have to make this one health and safety appointment. This person or team could be the one that's responsible for saving your employee's life while the ambulance is on route...

 

Make this one health and safety appointment to ensure your employee gets immediate emergency medical attention after an accident

 
You must, by law, have a first aid team. This is one of the most important appointments you can make because your first aid team could save your employee's life while you're waiting for the ambulance. 
 
You must ensure you have the right number of first aiders in your team. If you have ten employees, you must have one trained first aider. 
 
Then, for factories, you must have another first aider for every 50 employees.
 
For offices, you must have another first aider for every 100 employees. 
 
Here's what your first aider must know how to do. 
 
*********** Hot off the press  ************
 
This is without a doubt the most comprehensive emergency training programme I've ever come across
 
With more than 21 years of health and safety training experience behind Emergency First Aid Planning, you can rest assured your first aider will know everything he needs to do when disaster strikes… 
 
Michele uses the exact same steps and techniques she reveals in Emergency first aid planning to train first aiders around the country. 
 
 
*************************************
 

Here's what your first aider must know how to do

 
You must ensure your first aider has the emergency training to:
 
- Treat concussions;
- Stop bleeding;
- Strap broken bones;
- Give someone CPR;
- Bandage a wound;
- Calm an injured person down;
- Cope with highly stressful situations; and
- Safely do first aid procedures when there's blood. 
 
If your first aider has all this training, he can help keep your injured employee alive long enough for the paramedics to arrive and transport your employee to hospital. This could be the very thing that saves your employee's life.
