Safety and first aid provisions on site are of the utmost importance on any construction site and all forms of business.
However, within the construction industry some schemes can be spread over vast areas with sporadic places of work.
This forms difficult situations for the construction management team with regard to provisions of first aid, as there are typically first aid boxes located in certain areas of the site, normally housed in site cabins or water proof sheds.
This poses a big problem with the coverage range of first aid provisions on site, to have a person to administer first aid and have readily available kit to treat the injury.
So to overcome this process we will train certain members of a team working along set distances away from any first aid provisions and provide them with a first aid bum bag.
Within the bum bag there will be essential first aid kit applicable to the risk assessed injuries or accidents deemed likely to occur.
