EMS Sector Specific
This EMS Sector Specific Program identifies the hazards Paramedics face in regards to their role in providing pre-hospital care to the sick and injured throughout Ontario. The goal of the program is to provide the EMS worker with the knowledge and understanding of Hazards facing them in their course of duties. These Hazards are not focused to inside the workplace, but areas "outside the box" (outside the Station) as well. Topics included are; Traffic and Vehicle Safety, Ergonomic (MSD) hazards, Slips-Trips & Falls, Biohazards, Behavioral Patients, Hazards related to Confined Spaces, Trenching, Electrical and Specialized patient access issues (land/water/heights). The program assists the Health and Safety committee member with areas for improvement to reduce injuries and illness in the workplace, wherever it may be for the Paramedic.
