Meet OSHA Requirements with the Right First Aid Supplies

Meet OSHA Requirements with the Right First Aid Supplies
19 January 2021

Business owners have an obligation to not only keep their employees safe on the job, but to have First Aid supplies readily available. The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets the standards: Employers must ensure that adequate medical supplies are available. In addition, medical personnel are readily available for advice and consultation and a person or persons on site are trained in rendering first aid in the absence of an in-house infirmary.

First Aid can mean a number of things, from treating wounds by applying a bandage to irrigating eyes.

OSHA doesn’t have strict first aid kit requirements, but in their “Best Practices Guide: Fundamentals of a Workplace First-Aid Program,” they recommend that every employer choose one person who has the responsibility of choosing the types and amounts of first aid supplies, as well as keeping them stocked.
