WCB ETV Equipment Description

An ETV should be capable of transporting at least one worker on a stretcher. It should have a means of restraining a stretcher and have enough padding to prevent excessive jarring of the injured worker.

An ETV should contain the following equipment:

  • 1 set of hard cervical collars covering all adult sizes (or 2 adjustable hard cervical collars)
  • 1 spine board with handholds, no less than 44 cm x 1.8 m x 2 cm, acceptable to WorkSafeBC, and seven 1.8 m x 5 cm heavy velcro straps or equivalent to secure an injured worker
  • 1 stretcher (Whenever an injured worker may require transport over rough terrain a basket stretcher or other carrying device acceptable to WorkSafeBC must be used. The basket stretcher must have a spine board with handholds and retainer straps and a suitable mattress or padding)
  • 6 blankets (Three of these blankets may be the blankets needed with the Level 1, 2, or 3 kit at the workplace unless weather conditions at the workplace require more for the safe treatment or transport of injured workers, in which case suitable weather-resistant protection may also be needed)
  • 2 4.5 kg sand bags
  • 2 vomitus bags

When a Level 3 first-aid attendant is necessary, the following should be added:

  • 1 set of splints to include
    • 2 splints (1 cm x 10 cm x 1 m notched with 2.5 cm padding)
