ANSI First Aid Standards OSHA Complaint

What should be in my workplace first aid kit?

Workplaces vary widely in their degree of hazards, location, size, amount of staff training and availability of professional medical services. With the exception of the Logging Operations standard, 29 CFR 1910.266, OSHA standards do not require specific first-aid-kit contents. This includes the Medical Services and First Aid standards in both general industry and construction, 1910.151 and 1926.50. However, since some employers may find it useful to refer to a list of basic first-aid supplies, federal OSHA provided a reference for this type of information by adding non mandatory Appendix A to the latter two standards. Appendix A references ANSI Z308.1, Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies. First-aid kits in compliance with this standard will provide a basic range of products to deal with most types of injuries encountered in the workplace and may be adequate for a small work site. Employers should evaluate their own workplaces to determine whether additional supplies or kits are needed, based on the size and specific hazards of their workplaces. ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2009 includes the following recommended basic contents of a first aid kit.
