Electric shock planning: are you aware of what to do if one occurs?
Vital health and safety
Heavy machinery, working at heights and busy forecourts are all commonplace on most construction sites, making them incredibly dangerous. That’s why health and safety are vital.
Inevitably, accidents happen from time to time. Unfortunately, there’s no getting away from that. Procedures and training courses can help create a safer working environment. Here at CIP, we specialise in health and safety publications for the construction industry. Below are two publications all construction sites should have.
Providing basic first aid procedures for when someone has an electric shock on-site, this safety poster is a must-have for those working in electrical supply, electrical testing, transmission and generation. The poster highlights key steps to follow whilst waiting for help from the emergency service.
Employers and employees must, by law, record and report work-related accidents – no matter how big or small. The Accident Book features 50 accident record forms which make it easy for employers to keep all records in one place, whilst being GDPR compliant.
It is a legal requirement for all employers to record incidents involving workers, visitors and contractors, so they can share these with inspectors as and when required.
The difference between life and death
Essentially, both the Electric Shock First Aid Poster and Accident Book are vital publications for employers. Health and safety are paramount on all construction sites and the poster could be the difference between life and death on-site. Indeed, it could help prevent a more serious accident occurring.
Of course, we all know it’s a legal requirement to implement strict health and safety procedures on-site. Otherwise, you could incur a costly fine or – even worse – a prison sentence. Investing in both publications will ensure you’re compliant with safety regulations, whilst also helping to provide a safer working environment for your employees.
