First Aid Kits & Construction Safety

First Aid Kits & Construction Safety

On-the-job accidents can happen in any type of workplace, but some jobs carry more hazards than others.  Because construction is an inherently dangerous industry, there are innumerable measures and requirements in place to safeguard the well-being of workers, but accidents do occur.  When they do, it is critical to have the proper first aid supplies available. R. Baker & Son is wholly committed to the health and safety of staff, subcontractors, and visitors, and works in full compliance with all laws, regulations, and standards. 
OSHA requires every employer to have first aid kits readily available, but does not list specific supplies, instead referencing ANSI Z308.1-2009 for recommended minimums.

Kit types:
The ANSI standard specifies basic fill contents for first aid kits and divides them into four performance categories. Types I and II are intended for general indoor use, but are usually not sufficient for most construction and are generally recommended for office use and light manufacturing.  For construction, recommended first aid kits fall under types III and IV.  Type III, the category typically carried by R. Baker & Son workers in vehicles and job boxes, is intended for portable use in mobile industries and/or outdoor applications. They should be moisture and corrosion resistant, equipped with a carrying handle, have the means for being mounted in a fixed position, and must meet certain performance requirements. Type IV kits are for industries where potential for damage due to environmental factors and rough handling is high, and performance testing is particularly stringent.

First aid supplies: To comply with the ANSI standard, first aid kits must contain a minimum of specific supplies and must be regularly inspected. These supplies include such items as bandages, tape, compresses, gloves, antiseptic, burn treatment, cold packs, and sterile pads. In construction, first aid kits of type III or IV should be readily available on the jobsite and in work vehicles. Because of the strenuous nature of the job and the tools and machinery involved, a construction first aid kit should contain supplies beyond the minimum recommended, taking into account the trade in which it is used and the types of accidents and injuries that workers are more prone to. 

Safety and first aid training: First aid kits are only useful if workers know how to use them and can readily access them.  Employees must be properly trained in how to render first aid to themselves and fellow workers who have been injured, especially in industries like construction where accidents are more likely to occur.  All R. Baker & Son personnel are continually trained in all safety procedures including first aid kits.  Prevention, of course, is supremely important, and workers must receive thorough job safety training, utilize personal protection equipment, and work properly and safely at all times.
