How To Tell If You Need An Emergency Response Team

Many companies are considered high-hazard because they deal with flammables, electricity, and more. However, other companies are considered low-hazard environments and still find that employees get injured while on the job. Injuries and accidents can also lead to medical illness and trauma, which is why many companies wonder what else they can do to promote safety. An emergency response team (ERT) could be the best choice for you, but you may not know if one is necessary.

Benefits And Costs

Imagine that someone falls from scaffolding or gets stuck on a high ledge without a way to get down. If you don’t have an ERT or people who are skilled in helping, you will have to wait for 9-1-1 responders to arrive. Once they get there, they may not know what to do or may do things incorrectly because they don’t have the proper training to deal with your situation.

It is true that hiring an emergency response team will cost more money, but just remember that they aren’t necessary for every task. If you have something new or different or worry about safety for that particular thing, the benefits of hiring an ERT far outweigh the price you’ll pay.

Create Your Own?

Many company owners think it would be easier to hire an in-house group that will always be available when they’re needed. This could be the way to go if you have a lot of safety concerns for a lot of projects, but most of the time, you’ll pay a lot more for insurance, wages, and the like. Instead, you may want to hire the ERT through a staffing agency who will ensure that they have the proper skills.

An emergency response team is essential for a variety of projects around the property. Visit Code Red Safety now to learn more.
