Are your First Aid Kits up to par?
Do you have proper supplies in your kit? Correspondingly, do you have enough kits for the size of your workplace?
OSHA’s general industry regulations specifically state that an employer must train people to provide aid if there is no clinic or hospital nearby. Furthermore, employers must also make emergency supplies readily available. These supplies are generally provided as first-aid kits.
To create kits, employers must evaluate the hazards present as well as determine what tools and supplies their people will specifically need to provide proper assistance.
Because we want everyone to be prepared for emergencies, we created a checklist for you…Use our checklist to make sure you have the necessary supplies to keep your people safe!
