In most businesses that are medium to large, not a day goes by without some sort of minor injury or discomfort occurring. Whether this is a paper cut, twisted ankle, just a plain ol headache, or something serious such as a radiation burn, this can affect an employee's performance, that day and if serious enough, much longer. Our training products on First Aid show employees that knowing basic first aid can often limit the severity of any type of injury, or even prevent a death at the workplace. The topics covered in our programs include how to treat cuts and bleeding, set a broken bone, discussion and use of AED's, CPR and much more.
Per OSHA Standard 1910.151, First Aid supplies are to be readily available according to the stipulations of ANSI's "Minimum Requirements for Work Place First Aid Kits." The contents should be adequate for the worksite. If there are multiple sites or the sites are larger, it's the employer's responsibility to determine the need for additional first aid kits. Also if eyes or bodies can be exposed to corrosive materials, a suitable facility for drenching or flushing of eyes and skin needs to be made available.
