#21 Emergency Medical Services

  • Provision of Services. Where more than one employer is involved in a single construction project on a given construction site, each employer is responsible to ensure the availability of emergency medical services including a written plan for its employees.  The employers on the project may agree to ensure employee access to emergency medical services for the combined work force present at the job site.  Such an emergency medical service program shall be adequate to service the combined work force present, but only one emergency medical program need to be established at such site.

 

  • Appropriately Trained Person. Each employer shall ensure the availability of a suitable number of appropriately trained persons to render first aid.  Where more than one employer is involved in a single construction project on a given construction site, the employers may form a pool of appropriately trained persons.  However, such pool shall be large enough to service the combined work forces of such employers.

 

  • First-Aid Kit. Every employer working on or furnishing personnel on a construction project, on line crews and on other short duration of transient jobs shall provide at least one first-aid kit in a weatherproof container.  The contents of the first-aid kit shall be inspected regularly to ensure that the expanded items are promptly replaced.  The contents of the first-aid kit shall be arranged to be quickly found and remain sanitary.  First-aid dressings shall be sterile in individually sealed packages for each item.

 

  • Written Plan. The employer shall have a written plan to provide emergency medical services. The plan shall specify the means of implementing all applicable requirements in this section. When employers form a combined emergency medical services program with appropriately trained, persons, one written plan will be considered acceptable to comply with the intent of this subsection.
