High priority will be given to standards that support safety not only from an operational or technical viewpoint, but from a cultural perspective as well. Possible items for consideration include the following:

  • Physical fitness for practitioners (may be preferable for this to initially emerge as recommendations or guidelines rather than standards).
  • Shifts/fatigue
  • Categorizing and reporting violence against EMS personnel; model legislation outlawing such acts; standards for training to prevent/counter violence and prevent injuries to EMS personnel and patients.
  • Checking driver records and similar employment screening.
  • Quality improvement and supervision.
  • Medical equipment and patient-moving equipment; making equipment loads manageable.
  • Ambulance design, maintenance, etc.
  • Dispatch standards: Encouragement of prioritized dispatch protocols, for ground and air, to ensure that the response is commensurate with the nature of the emergency and that unjustified risk is minimized.
