Why CPR and First Aid Training is Critical in Construction

CPR and First Aid Training Class @ R.Baker & Son

There is no question that having employees who are trained in CPR and first aid has many benefits, first and foremost the fact that it saves lives. But CPR and first aid training can be particularly important in construction and demolition, for several reasons.

First, there are more injuries and fatalities in construction than any other industry due to the nature of the job and its inherent dangers. With the increased likelihood of accidents occurring, there is more necessity for construction and demolition workers to be trained in CPR and first aid.

Another factor that makes CPR and first aid training important in construction is the lack of access. Every minute counts when a worker is severely injured or in cardiac arrest, and first responders may be delayed when responding to a call from a construction site. 

When an accident or illness occurs in an office building or factory floor, for example, first responders are generally directed to a precise location where there is ready access to the patient. But on a construction site, with few signs, room numbers, or other identifiers, emergency personnel may have difficulty locating the patient. And, once located, the worker may be difficult to access. They may be on an upper floor with no elevators in operation, or on a demolition job-site where walkways, stairs, or entire buildings may no longer exist. Just a few minutes’ delay in reaching an ill or injured worker can make the difference between life and death, which is why it is crucial for construction and demolition workers to be trained in CPR and first aid. 

At R. Baker & Son, safety is our number one priority. While OSHA recommends, but does not require, that one or more person be trained in first aid and CPR, such training is a requirement for every demolition worker, rigger, and millwright at R. Baker & Son.
