We build our office with the love and care, just the way we raise our children. And while developing our business, our employees help us a lot. With their work and dedication we can promise our clients the products on time. And because of that, we strive hard to provide our employees with the best possible facilities, so that they give their best.
But while making sure that the employees are comfortable at the office, we also have to make sure that we have the supplies if there is any medical emergency. Employees spend half of the day at the office, so it is the responsibility of the employer that the office is stocked with the medical supplies and ready to deal with any kind of emergency. During the time, the employees are at the office, they are the responsibility of the employee. It can happen that the employees get hurt while at the office or fall ill suddenly. That time, the office should be equipped to deal with such kind of situation.
The organization should have a first-aid kit, which can be used for any minor injury or health problem. The kit should consist of bandages, gauze, first-aid cotton, creams, thermometer, cold packs, medicines, etc. These are the medical products which can be used during an emergency. Bandages and gauze can used for any injuries for the time being, till the injured person is taken to the hospital. This will not just give temporary comfort to the ill person, but will also stop the injury from escalating.
Also, it is good to keep thermometer, blood pressure kits or medicines for the employees who suffer from any kind of illness. The blood pressure patients, or diabetic patients need care or their health condition can get worse. So, it is always better to keep the office equipped with kits to check the Blood Pressure or diabetes.
Along with that, the office should have the personal hygiene products. It is necessary to keep the hygiene products like hand sanitizer or personal soap in the office, so that the cleanliness is maintained. Infections and virus can spread quickly and to avoid that personal hygiene should be maintained very precariously. The office should also keep the feminine products for the female employees. This is important for the female employee and can come handy during any emergency.
Also, if your office provides baby day care for the children of the employees, make sure you have kept diapers in stock along with the baby food products. The children are more vulnerable towards diseases and can easily fall sick. Make sure that there are enough baby products stocked so that the children won’t have to face discomfort. Also, take steps and keep the area clean, where the children are kept.
While sticking the first-aid box, make sure that you have checked the expiry date of the medicines and the medical kits. If the products have been expired, throw them out immediately, as they can have adverse effects on any person if they use it without checking. Periodically check the medicines, if they are still usable. Other than this, keep the contact numbers of the doctors in the medical room. At the time of emergency, searching for the contact number can be dangerous. Arrange medical checkups for the employees.
Furthermore, train your employees regarding the hygiene. The employees should have the basic knowledge of the steps they need to take during any kind of medical emergency. This might help in saving lives of people. Immediate medical attention can stop the health of the ill person from deteriorating.
Keeping first-aid and health supplies in the office will keep the office environment clean and healthy and would keep your employees fresh.
