It’s no secret: Emergency Medical Service workers face a number of risks every single day. Potential hazards such as motor vehicle incidents, exposure to infectious diseases, slips, trips and falls, workplace violence and aggression, and the potential negative effects of shift work heighten the risk of occupational illness/injury.
The impact of these injuries can be minimized when employers take a proactive approach to health and safety. Providing client-focused resources to address system priorities and high hazard activities is the key to eliminating workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses in Paramedic Services.
