Prepare for Medical Emergencies

Workplace medical emergencies vary greatly depending on the disaster, type of job and the worksite. Heavy equipment operators face different safety risks than do office workers or food service personnel. Regardless of the type of work, there are steps which can give you the upper hand in responding to a medical emergency.

  1. Encourage employees to take basic First Aid and CPR training. Offer on-site classes for your co-workers.
  2. Keep First Aid supplies in stock and easily accessible.
  3. Encourage employees to talk about medical conditions that may require support or special care in an emergency.
  4. Keep employee emergency contact information on file and up-to-date. Store a copy with other vital records in your emergency kit and another at an off-site location.
