In industrial settings, where jobs are often high-risk and remote and emergency services may not be readily accessible, it is paramount to ensure medical supplies and personnel meet legal requirements.
While specific requirements may vary depending on jurisdiction as well as your worksite’s size, hazard level and distance from emergency services, most worksites further than 20 minutes from a hospital require at least one first aider on-site, and large, high-risk, or highly remote worksites may require on-site emergency responders as well.
Whatever your on-site medical needs, take advantage of Irwin's!
Our top-notch medical services team can help you through the entire process of understanding and meeting medical regulations, from assessments to emergency response:
First aid requirement assessments identify if your workplace requires a first aid attendant and what type of certification they need to ensure that you and your staff are safe and compliant.
Once completed, IRWIN'S consultants will create an up-to-date, documented first aid procedure for your workplace to follow. This may include drills, to be conducted yearly as a refresher on the first aid process and assigning a staff member to manage the first aid services.
IRWIN'S Safety can provide fully trained and experienced first aid and medical personnel to any project. Getting a first aid assessment will help you determine whether your workplace is required to have a first aid attendant and what certification each attendant should have. At IRWIN'S our medical personnel are licensed and equipped with required equipment such as a Jumpkit, O2 kit, AED, Spineboard/clamshell and an MTC. In addition, they are trained to perform anything from first aid room, "walk-in style" patient assessments and treatments, to emergencies in the field.
Our OFA3s and EMRs are licensed according to the EMALB (Emergency Medical Assistants Licensing Board) in BC and the ACP (Alberta College of Paramedics) in Alberta.
