Work Injuries and Mishap Reports. Report injuries, including minor injuries,
to your immediate supervisor. Every mishap involving personnel injury, property
damage, or near misses must be investigated to determine the cause and the corrective
action needed to prevent recurrence. Cognizant safety personnel conduct
investigations. The safety staff must be notified of all mishaps that involve personnel
injuries or property damage.
exposed at or above 50 volts and those trades listed in paragraph 4-4.1 shall be
provided with first aid and CPR training. First aid training is primarily received through
the American Red Cross, the National Safety Council, or other private institutions.
Employees shall obtain refresher training as necessary to maintain their certifications
current. When employees are performing work on or associated with exposed lines or
equipment energized at 50 volts or more, persons trained in first aid including
cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) shall be available as follows:
a. For field work involving two or more employees at a work location, at least
two trained persons shall be available. See Paragraph 3-3 for those jobs
requiring at least two employees.
b. For fixed work locations such as generating stations, the number of
trained persons available shall be sufficient to ensure that each employee
exposed to electric shock can be reached within 4 minutes by a trained
person. However, where the existing number of employees is insufficient
to meet this requirement (at a remote substation, for example), all
employees at the work location shall be trained.
First Aid Supplies.
1-8.4.1 Storage and Inspection. First aid supplies shall be placed in weatherproof
containers if the supplies could be exposed to the weather. Each first aid kit shall be
maintained, shall be readily available for use, and shall be inspected frequently enough
to ensure that expended items are replaced. Inspection shall occur at least once per
1-8.4.2 Contents. An example of the minimal contents of a generic first aid kit is
described in American National Standard (ANSI) Z308.1, Minimum Requirements for
Workplace First-aid Kits. The contents of the kit listed in the ANSI standard should be
adequate for small worksites. When larger operations or multiple operations are being
conducted at the same location, employers should determine the need for additional
first aid kits at the worksite, additional types of first aid equipment and supplies and
additional quantities and types of supplies and equipment in the first aid kits.
Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). Where emergency medical
assistance is not readily available, usually within four minutes, the use of AEDs may be
