Due to the first aid response times on site, we have setup a drone to allow a first aid kit and/ or defibrillator to be used to transport the items to the injured.
In the Risk and Method statement we have identified issues such as notifying the site that a drone is in use and for all other works to stop and for a site radio to be taken with the first aid drone incase the first person to attend to the injured may not be first aid trained.
This is so the radio can be used to instruct the untrained first aider how to keep the injured calm until the first responder gets to the injured.
In recent years many people on site are now first aid trained but with delayed access to a first aid kit. This is where the drone can aid with cutting down the response times to the injured.
