Construction Medics

On-Site medical support for construction projects and budgets of all sizes

Amphibious Medics can provide medical support to your site, full time or on-call. Count on us for projects of all sizes – whether you require an on-site clinic staffed with a medic whenever your crew is present, or you want all the benefits of that same on-site clinic available on an on-call basis.

First response and patient care are always our first priority. By responding and assessing at the moment an incident occurs or at the first signs of illness, Amphibious Medics can determine the best course of action for each individual case. Unnecessary off-site treatment, workers comp claims, lost time, associated costs, and recordables can be avoided while proper necessary treatment is administered immediately. Amphibious Medics also serves as a first line of defense against fraudulent claims.

We provide all levels of construction first aid and track on-site injury and illness data with proprietary software. Our medical support team complements your existing safety department and specializes in maintaining compliance with OSHA standards 1926.23 and 1926.50 as well as conforming to Army Corps of Engineers EM385 1-1 for government projects.

Managing the Gap

Amphibious Medics manages the gap between the simple first aid that organizations can provide to their employee and subcontractor populations, and the over-treatment that most clinics will administer. By acting as a trusted, independent third party, Amphibious Medics can deliver the high-quality care your teams require, while avoiding costly and unnecessary clinic or ER overtreatment

Program

IRAMP is our unique approach to protecting your company’s safety record. This program ensures that first aid is administered on-site whenever possible, avoiding costly unnecessary worker’s compensation claims, lost time, disability, light duty, physical therapy, etc.

Reducing over-treatment and expediting return to work is the key goal of this very effective program.

IRAMP has been designed to bridge the gap between OSHA regulations, engineering language, and medical operations by defining clear response directives for specific incidents in a fashion that is compliant with OSHA 300 log recordability directives.

Emergency First Response

First response and patient care are our first two priorities. By responding and assessing at the moment an incident occurs or at the first signs of illness, Amphibious Medics can determine the best course of action for each individual case.

  • Full time or on-call Medic, EMT, or Nurse
  • Incident triage and scene management assistance

Health and Safety Plan Administration

Amphibious Medics will coordinate with local EMS agencies to develop site-specific emergency response plans. We physically visit with local first responders to develop essential relationships that can be valuable in times of crisis. Egress routing will be conspicuously posted throughout the site. We work hand-in-hand with local medical facilities to ensure follow up care is referred and treated within the company insurance / workman's comp network. Our goal is getting employees treated, recovered, and back to work in a timely but safe manner.
