Even after taking all necessary safety precautions and measures, sometimes accidents may also occur in industries. After major or minor accidents, an injured worker requires immediate preliminary treatment in the absence of same his condition may become highly critical. To take care of such situations, industries must employ full time, at least a medical person who has successfully completed his Red-Cross First-Aid Course, and who can give preliminary treatment to the injured person.
The injured person may later on be shifted safely to the nearby hospital through the ambulance or otherwise through any vehicle or by other means as per the availability of mode of transportation. Besides the above service, a first-aid personnel should take care of those workers or employees who come across injury by minor cuts, burns or electric shock. The first aid provider should bring the victim in first aid room for further treatment. In case of fatal injury first aid provider should call the doctor as soon as possible or to arrange the ambulance for taking the victim to the hospital. He should deal the victim with full sympathy and make early arrangement to call the family member or some responsible member so that adequate arrangements can be made in hospital for the due care of the victim. If breathing has stopped, he or she should be provided artificial respiration immediately.
