Life Changing Skills

Do all businesses require first aid?

The Health Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 require all construction sites to have:

  • a first aid box with enough equipment to cope with the number of workers on site.
  • an appointed person to take charge of first aid arrangements.
  • information telling workers the name of the appointed person or first aider and where to find them. A notice in the site hut is a good way of doing this.

Tailored For People Working In The Construction Industries.

We Can Come To You!

Knowing how to give first aid is a skill that can help you handle medical emergencies in any situation, whether at home, on the street or at work.

If you work in the construction industry, there is a higher chance of accidents happening on building sites because of the type of work. Having first aiders on site could save a victim’s life if a medical emergency happened.

These charts show the most frequent accidents that happen on building sites and the most common cause of death and serious injury.

The main cause of death is falls from height, which can also cause serious injury. Being able to react quickly to these accidents can save lives and prevent the injury from getting worse. Falls from height can involve severe fractures, bleeds, head and spinal injuries as well as shock.

Being able to treat these injuries on the spot before the ambulance arrives could make the difference between life and death. For example, someone who stops breathing has only about 4 to 6 minutes before their brain cells start to die. Doing CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) will keep them alive until the paramedics come with AED machines and more help.

Heavy bleeds need to be stopped right away within 5 minutes or the victim may die from blood loss.

It will take longer than this for an ambulance to get there, so the first aider’s actions are very important.
