It is time to get your plan together to upgrade or replace your business first aid supplies to assure OSHA & ANSI compliance.

The most significant change from previous editions of the ANSI Minimum Requirements for Workplace Kits and Supplies is the introduction of two classes of first aid kits, based on the assortment and quantity of first aid supplies.

Class A kits are designed to deal with most common workplace injuries, such as minor cuts, abrasions and sprains. Whereas Class B First aid kits include a broader range and quantity of supplies to deal with injuries in more complex or high-risk environments.

First aid kits are also designated by Type (I, II, III or IV) depending on the work environment in which they are to be used. For example, Type 1 identifies kits used indoors and permanently mounted to a wall or other structure; Type IV kits are suitable for outdoor use and must pass tests for corrosion, moisture and impact resistance.

As first aid experts in the field for 25 years now we often are asked "what should I do" and/or "what's the best way to go" when there is a major regulation or standard change in CPR or first aid. We've written many articles to help business owners and safety managers decipher this morass of info, but the bottom line is: err on the side of caution. Go with the new ANSI standards for a first aid kit or cabinet - it will almost always meet or exceed your OSHA requirements, and while refill or upgrade packs are available, they really aren't much less than a new kit, so unless you've got a wall-mounted cabinet that would be a bear to remove... just get a new kit and know you've got full content and fresh expiration dates as well as meeting all new guidelines.
