What is First-Aid?
First-aid refers to medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred. It’s often consists a one-time, short-term treatment and administered by certified EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians). First-aid can include cleaning minor cuts, scrapes or scratches; treating a minor burn, applying bandages and dressings; recommending non-prescription medicine; removing debris from the eyes; drinking fluids to relieve heat stress; treating minor sprains and strains, etc.
Why Have Onsite First-Aid?

This helps to keep the cost of injuries to a minimum by providing early first-aid intervention and follow-up. We arrive with all equipment and supplies necessary to treat first-aid injuries. Onsite care is immediate and can reduce work comp claims, prevent unnecessary clinic visits, avoid time loss, and improve productivity.
What if an Employee Requires a Higher Level of Medical Attention?
Our highly-trained professional EMTs will provide a full assessment of the worker’s injury and will determine the appropriate treatment and follow-up care. The majority of our first-aid incidents are successfully treated at the scene and the employee is able to return to full work duty.
If there is a need for elevated medical care the employee will be transported round trip to your preferred clinic or after-hours emergency department. With Metro MedCALL you have an alternative to having the worker take themselves for treatment or the liability risk of having other employees transport an injured worker.
