OHS Articles By Joe Kretchik first aid and if the injury or illness is workrelated, it's recordable. For additionalclarification, the standard also includes a list of specific conditions http://www.mdli.com/ohs/articles/nov1999.shtml
Extractions: November/December 1999 OSHA's new standard for "Occupational Injury and Illness, Recording and Reporting" becomes effective on January 1 of 2000. This new standard is the culmination of a lengthy process initiated with a "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" published on February 2, 1996. It contains many important changes. The new standard is a complete rewrite of 29 CFR Part 1904 (Recording and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses) and a revision of 29 CFR Part 1952.4 (which deals with recordkeeping requirements under state plans). One goal of the new standard is to simplify OSHA recordkeeping requirements. The original standard contained many vague areas, particularly with regard to work-relatedness and whether or not an injury or illness was recordable. A number of clarifications of the original standard were published in separate documents over a period of several years. Many of these have been incorporated directly into the new standard. Also many basic terms (such as employee, establishment, work-related, lost-workday, restricted work activity, first aid) have been redefined to improve clarity. It is hoped that a clearer recordkeeping standard will result in more consistent reporting and improved data. The quality of the data has become increasingly important to OSHA, since the data is being used to develop standards and focus OSHA resources on problem areas with high injury rates. OSHA is also placing more emphasis on the use of site-specific data rather than composite SIC code data. As a part of the effort to focus resources, there have been additions and deletions to the groups that are partially exempt from the recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Companies receive these exemptions due to small numbers of employees or SIC codes with low injury rates.
Virtual Naval Hospital: Standard First Aid Course - Chapter One - Introduction A booklet about emergency care and treatment of a sick or injured person before professional medical Category Health Public Health and Safety first aid Prior to learning first aid for a specific illness or You must immediately recognizeif the casualty has one of the following conditions that represent an http://www.vnh.org/StandardFirstAid/chapter1.html
Extractions: Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed First aid is the emergency care and treatment of a sick or injured person before professional medical services are obtained. FIRST AID MEASURES ARE NOT MEANT TO REPLACE PROPER MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT , but will only consist of providing temporary support until professional medical assistance is available. The purposes of first aid are (1) to save life, (2) prevent further injury, and (3) to minimize or prevent infection. Everyone in the Navy must know how and when to render first aid and be prepared to provide competent assistance to the sick and injured in all circumstances. The knowledge of first aid, when properly applied, can mean the difference between temporary or permanent injury, rapid recovery or long-term disability, and the difference between life and death. While administering first aid, the three primary objectives are (1) to maintain an open airway, (2) maintain breathing, and (3) to maintain circulation. During this process you will also control bleeding, and reduce or prevent shock. You must respond rapidly, stay calm, and think before you act. Do not waste time looking for ready-made materials, do the best you can with what is at hand. Request professional medical assistance as soon as possible.

International Travel And Health - Chapter01_02 firstaid items specific recommendations for the use of antimalarial drugs duringpregnancy Airlines have regulations on the conditions for travel for disabled http://www.who.int/ith/chapter01_02.html
Extractions: See here Health risks associated with travel are greater for certain groups of travellers, including infants and young children, pregnant women, the elderly, the disabled, and those who have pre-existing health problems. For all of these travellers, medical advice and special precautions are necessary. They should be well informed about the available medical services at the travel destination. Infants and young children have special needs with regard to vaccinations and antimalarial precautions (see Chapters and ). They are particularly sensitive to ultraviolet radiation and become dehydrated more easily than adults in the event of inadequate fluid intake or loss of fluid due to diarrhoea. A child can be overcome by dehydration within a few hours. Air travel may cause discomfort to infants due to changes in cabin air pressure and is contraindicated for infants less than 7 days old. Infants and young children are more sensitive to sudden changes in altitude. They are also more susceptible to many infectious diseases.
