First Aid Kits

First-aid kits must be available to address minor first-aid injuries that might occur in the workplace. First-aid supplies are to be stored in containers to protect contents from damage, deterioration, and/or contamination. Supplies should be purchased through a reputable vendor and replenished as needed to maintain minimum quantities. Contents must not include over the counter or prescription drugs because of the potential of access by minors, allergic reactions, or expired medications. Employees may store and manage their own medications. 


General rules for use

Departments are responsible for providing and maintaining their own first aid kits. The kits should be stored in an easily accessible location and stocked with supplies that are suitable for the type of work and number of employees in your area.
