Bumping this back up. I had a helper on a job slice himself pretty good yesterday and I found that my “first aid kit” is just a ****ing red box with Bengay and a lollipop. Didn’t even have regular neosporin. Luckily I had some gauze, stretch wrap and neosporin in the console - but I see where we could have been kind of ****ed.
Anyway, I’m going to look into a nice kit that rides in the work truck and the trail rig and some first aid training.
I am a First Responder and trainer and teach my guys one simple rule, if it's wet and not yours, don't touch it...Before anything comes in contact with yourself, put on rubber gloves and keep a pair in your first aid kit. Two things can happen if you don't put them on, if you come in contact with someone that has a disease, you now have it. Secondly, if you have any bacteria's on you, you have now infected that person and both of you will need treatment. Just some food for thought.
