Step 2

First Aid Kit

A first aid kit must be provided by each employer on all jobsites and must contain the minimum of supplies as determined by an authorized licensed physician or as listed in 1512(c). The contents of the first-aid kit shall be inspected regularly to ensure that the expended items are promptly replaced.

Step 3

Trained Personnel

Trained personnel in possession of a current Red Cross First Aid certificate or its equivalent must be immediately available at the jobsite to provide first aid treatment.

Step 4

Emergency Medical Services

Each employer must ensure that its employees have access to emergency medical services at the jobsite.

Step 5

Injury or Illness Procedures

Each employer shall inform all of its employees of the procedure to follow in case of injury or illness.

Step 6

Written Plan

Employer shall have a written plan to provide emergency medical services.

Medical services and first aid in electrical works shall also comply with the requirements of Electrical Safety Orders (ESOs) as applicable.

Step 7

Prompt Transport

Proper equipment for prompt transport of the injured or ill person to an Emergency Medical Service (EMS) facility or an effective communication system for calling an emergency medical facility, ambulance, or fire service must be provided. Telephone numbers for listed emergency services must be posted (see Cal/OSHA poster S-500).

Step 8

Medical Services for the Combined Work Force

The employers on the project may agree to ensure employee access to emergency medical services for the combined work force present at the jobsite.

Step 9

Exposure to Blood

Exposure to blood borne pathogens is considered a job-related hazard for construction workers who are assigned first aid duties in addition to construction work. Although construction employers are specifically exempted from GISO 5193 requirements, they are required to provide appropriate protection for employees who may be exposed to blood borne pathogens when providing first aid.
