Ensuring a quicker response time: first aider call button

Construction work poses a number of potential risks and hazards.

It is essential that appropriate safety procedures are implemented and communicated to the workforce.

Arrangements should be made to effectively deal with emergency situations.

Below is an example of how sites have adapted procedures to ensure an efficient response:

  • A first aider call button was provided on fire alarms;
  • First aiders received an instant text alert to notify them that assistance is required at a defined location;
  • This saved time with phone calls and resulted in a quicker response time.
