First Aid Training is an Important Part of Health and Safety Training
Why is First Aid Training Important?
Even after performing extensive risk assessments, having appropriate safety controls and receiving all the health and safety training in the world, accidents in the workplace will still happen. No amount of training or precautions can absolutely guarantee that accidents won't occur; they can only reduce the chances. All places of work contain dangers, whether it be hazardous substances, electrical dangers, moving objects etc. As a result, first aid provisions are essential, and in most countries will be a legal requirement.
In the UK, The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 requires employers to provide adequate equipment, facilities and personnel in order to provide first aid to those who become ill or injured at work. The level of provision they must make is dependant on various factors such as the number of employees and the nature of the business. A large, high-risk workplace such as a large construction site will need a number of trained first-aiders as well as dedicated first-aid areas, but as a bare minimum a small company will need a well-stocked first aid box and to appoint a person to take charge of first aid arrangements.
Many companies will go above the minimum legal requirements for first aid training, sometimes including basic first aid courses as part of their overall programme of health and safety training for employees. Having a healthy and happy workforce has many advantages for a business including increased staff motivation, along with lower levels of absenteeism and expensive compensation claims from injured workers.
Head Injuries in the Workplace
The head is one of the most vulnerable parts of the human body. Damage to the head caused by a falling object or being hit on the way down as a result of a slip or trip can lead to anything from a slight headache for a while to permanent brain damage or even death in certain cases. The potential for serious and/or permanent damage makes it essential that suitable precautions are taken whenever there is the potential for a health and safety risk which can pose a threat to a person's head.
When it comes to head injuries at work, the most obvious place of work where this can occur is a construction site, and results in designated areas where workers and visitors to the site should not venture to without wearing suitable hard hat protection. Usually this will be to provide some level of protection from falling objects due to activities taking place above or loose materials, but can also protect from flying debris striking the head.
Head injuries are by no means just confined to those working in the construction industry though. As mentioned in the opening paragraph, a slip or trip can subsequently result in a head injury, and so there is a potential risk in to a worker in any industry. Also, employees working in places such as a warehouse may encounter a danger from heavy objects falling onto their head from items stored high up on shelving units. The common occurrence of head injuries and their ability to happen in any place of work means that it is given attention on the syllabus of numerous health and safety training courses including the NEBOSH General Certificate, and of course specific construction safety courses such as the NEBOSH Construction Certificate, SMSTS and SSSTS courses.
And it is not just blows which can cause damage. The head incorporates important features such as eyes and ears which will require protection to prevent damage to them if the conditions in the place of work mean they are at risk. Examples will include goggles or safety masks to prevent splashing of hazardous chemicals into the eyes and ear defenders when loud machinery is present.
