Medical Services & First Aid

 

Although UVM’s proximity to emergency medical services meets basic requirements for addressing medical emergencies, the severity of some types of machine shop injuries suggests that additional resources may be in the best interest of those that use and manage machine shop areas.

Recommendations for first aid in machine shop areas include having a supervisor in that area at all times that is trained in basic first aid (classes are available through the American Red Cross), maintaining basic first aid kits monthly that have supplies only and no medication, provide training to all shop users so that they know the medical emergency protocol.
