TITLE 8:
CONSTRUCTION SAFETY ORDERS
CHAPTER 4, SUBCHAPTER 4, ARTICLE 3, SECTION 1512(b)
 
EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES, FIRST AID


Amend Section 1512 to read:

1512. Emergency Medical Services.

*****

(b) Appropriately Trained Person. Each employer shall ensure the availability of a suitable number of appropriately trained persons to render first aid. Where more than one employer is involved in a single construction project on a given construction site, the employers may form a pool of appropriately trained persons. However, such pool shall be large enough to service the combined work forces for such employers.

EXCEPTION: Engineering contractors or service providers with one employee on a job site not engaged in construction activity (e.g. operation of tools, equipment or machinery directly associated with construction) are excluded from the requirements of subsection (b) where all of the following conditions are met:

1) The employer has implemented an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program; 2) The employee is provided appropriate personal protective equipment and received specific training and instruction on the use of such equipment; and 3) Upon entering the job site, the employee reports to the superintendent or person in charge and is advised where first aid supplies are located and from whom treatment can be obtained.
