MARCOM's interactive course on First Aid in Construction Environments discusses what employees should do and not do when someone is sick or injured, and how to determine when they should call for emergency assistance.
When a construction worker is injured or becomes ill on a job site, their coworkers will usually be the first ones on the scene and have the opportunity to provide some initial treatment. In these situations they need to be able to recognize common injuries and illnesses, and understand how to treat them.
Areas covered in the course include eye injuries, cuts, burns and abrasions, strains, sprains, fractures and shock, heart attack and cardiac arrest, choking, heat-related illnesses and more.
Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
