Sites should have trained first aid operatives on site, as well as emergency procedures in place to effectively deal with an accident or illness.
Some sites take this further by encouraging members of the workforce to become fully trained Community First Responders.
Community First Responder volunteers are trained to attend local emergency calls and provide care until the ambulance arrives and can take over.
This is another opportunity for the construction industry to care for the local community and give effective help, if needed.
