About

Overview

When a jobsite emergency arises, it's the people on the job that are the first responders. This gives those people — the contractors, the construction workers, and anyone else onsite — the critical responsibility of quickly and effectively acting to minimize damage and maximize safety. Prepare your students for this important role with JOBSITE FIRST AID: A FIELD GUIDE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY. This book takes a systematic approach to responding to emergency situations, from minor burns to life-threatening events and situations. It is the perfect complement to hands-on safety training, and it's ideally packaged to fit into your students' toolboxes, glove boxes, or desk drawers, so that it can be easily accessed when needed. Check out our app, DEWALT® Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.
