No one wants there to be a medical emergency at work, but you still need to be prepared for one. Here are 5 things every office needs in case of medical emergencies.
5 Items Every Office Should Have for Medical Emergencies
Most everyday medical mishaps can be handled with a bandaid or an ice pack. For those bumps, bruises and cuts, be sure to have a first aid kit on hand. Not only that, make sure you have a kit that’s the right size for your facility – or get multiple kits and station them around the workplace. Check with OSHA about first aid kit requirements!
If you work around dangerous chemicals, you already know that protecting your eyes is important. When harmful material gets into the eyes of someone at your workplace, you must act fast. That’s why it’s important to have a wash station nearby.
Nobody wants to think about the reasons you need sorbent at work. Just trust us, you do.
And while you’re at it, handling a bodily fluid cleanup requires a special bodily fluid cleanup kit, as well. That’s a job you don’t want to mess up!
When the emergency is more than you can handle at the office, it’s time to call 911. While most people have a cell phone handy, a landline is preferred by emergency services, as there’s a location tied to the number. It’s always handy to have a telephone on hand.
