Imagine if you will, a serious workplace accident has occurred, or you’re with your family or friends and someone yells for help!
The construction industry and life, in general, is full of hazards everywhere we turn. Traditional first aid courses are designed for low-risk urban settings where risk is minimal. In construction though, we know that both the likelihood and severity of illness or injury is greater due to the nature of the activities we engage in and the environment we work in. The situation is then compounded by the extended period of time to definitive care, meaning YOU as the responder must be able to deal with the casualty for longer.
As part of the Canadian Armed Forces with 4 of those years on the Canadian Special Operations Regiment (CSOR), Tim has been a part of various Canadian combat deployments. We are honored to have Tim on our team and available to train your staff.
