Saving Lives with Emergency ID Tags for Construction Workers
Imagine the scenario: a construction worker is found unconscious at your site. Paramedics arrive at the scene quickly and need to know about the patient - do they have any medical conditions, are they on any medication?
More than 95 percent of emergency responders looks for medical ID tags but this patient isn't wearing any. How quickly would you be able to find their medical details to assist treatment? First responders need to access medical information as soon as possible. In some cases, especially when a patient has existing health conditions, it could mean the difference between life and death.
At a busy construction site, it's likely that team members may not have any idea about other workers medical information or who to be contacted in the case of an emergency. Even close friends may not inform each other about medical conditions or medications they take. Worker safety ID can speak for a construction worker in the case that they are unable to speak for themselves.
EMITAGS (Emergency Medical Information Tags) are an innovative product exclusive to Enfield Safety: the tag can be secured to a hard hat and gives vital emergency information to a first responder, including details of: allergies, medications and emergency contacts.
EMITAGS are ideal for construction industry workers and other hard hat wearing professionals such as those in the oil and gas industry, aviation and retail. Just think, if you were involved in an accident your biggest concerns would be receiving quick and appropriate emergency care and knowing that your family where informed as soon as possible.
At Enfield Safety we want to help construction and industry professionals eliminate as many emergency situations as possible, but we know that incidents still happen. EMITAGS give your team peace of mind that in the event of an emergency they will receive the best emergency care possible.
