Portable First Aid Rooms
In any business or industry, injury or illness can strike a worker and require instant medical care in first aid rooms. However it’s safe to say that mining, construction, agricultural, manufacturing and other industrial services carry a higher risk factor than most. Despite rigorous occupational health and safety regulations, and the best efforts to ensure a safe workplace, accidents can and do happen, and first aid rooms are an essential requirement. And on many worksites it is actually required by law.
Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act a first aid room must be provided and maintained at any construction site at which more than 100 persons work or at any other workplace at which more than 200 persons work. Other workplaces not covered by this provision of the regulation may still have circumstances that require a first aid room.
Fully Equipped and Ready to Go
At Transterra Containers ™ our shipping container first aid rooms are available in 20 foot and 40 foot options, and come equipped with lighting and power, reverse cycle air conditioning, an examination couch, sink, desk, chair, fridge and hot water system. They also feature high quality medical supplies and emergency equipment, including an automated external defibrillator, eyewash station, oxygen mask, scoop stretcher, fire extinguisher and fire blanket.
A transportable first aid room has many benefits because it can be on hand from day one to ensure that your worksite is always prepared for the worst. It can also be moved around on large sites to make sure it is close to the action and ready for any emergency situation.
First Aid Rooms for Festivals, Roadshows and Farms
Though they were originally conceived for construction and mining sites, a portable shipping container first aid room can be used anywhere a first aid room is required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. Music festivals, markets, outdoor concerts, rallies, trade exhibitions, travelling roadshows…these can all benefit from a portable first aid room. Even permanent sites where portability is not necessarily required, like farms and caravan sites, can benefit from the utility of a well-stocked, compact and fully equipped first aid room.
