Medical and First Aid Supplies
First aid and medical supplies aren't accessories, they're necessities. Regardless of the size of your organization, school, building, or home, the proper tools to handle medical emergency are simply non-negotiable. While planned medical treatment and aid should always be left in the hands of professionals, a bystander, EMT, or on-site nurse can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. Stock up on the right medical and first aid supplies, and make sure you meet all legal and moral obligations to take care of those around you.
OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, requires that all workplaces have adequate first aid supplies to treat minor injuries and health issues. Compliance with OSHA regulations is required by law and is essential to acquiring certifications and insurance for your business. ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, lays out a more specific set of guidelines for what types of first aid and medical equipment should be made available in places of business and other public settings. While voluntary, ANSI recommendations are being followed by an increasing number of states and regulatory bodies and should always be heeded.
The best place to start when stocking first aid equipment is with a complete kit. Many first aid kits are already approved by OSHA and ANSI and provide a basic level of primary care for a predetermined number of people. These kits are equipped to handle cuts, personal ills, burns, allergic reactions, and much, much more. Be sure to take an accurate count of how many people are in your space and pick a first aid kit that will cover them all.
General first aid is good, but it sure doesn't cover everybody. Assess the needs of your space in terms of what people do there. If there isn't a governing body that recommends other accessories that you have on hand, shop our selection of eyewashes, blood pressure kits, crutches, wheelchairs, and more - and make sure you've thought of everything.
