ANSI First Aid

  • GET COMPLIANT FOR LESS! (Only $19.99)

    GET COMPLIANT FOR LESS!

    GET OSHA / ANSI COMPLIANT: You can replace or completely refill your first aid kit or cabinet for LESS than replacing expired and missing content or adding the required items! Spend your 2018 budget for 2019 compliance – and write off the expense this year!

    ANSI Standards for Workplace First Aid have changed. Kits purchased in previous years are not up to current standards. Most businesses need to meet or exceed ANSI First Aid Kit requirements - State and OSHA regulations most often start with these as minimum requirements - and then in some cases build up further from there for industry-specific needs. The ANSI requirements call for much more first aid kit content than previous business first aid kits contained. These ANSI First Aid Kits, ANSI First Aid Kit Refills, and Upgrade Packs will assure your ANSI compliance. Read about ANSI Z308.1-2015. Want your logo? We can silkscreen your own imprint FREE starting at just 36 first aid kits or 18 first aid cabinets - call for details if interested.

  • ?8 elements to a compliant, effective first-aid program

    Great article from the Business Journal!

    A quick response is necessary when there is an injury or sudden illness. Getty Images (SolStock) A quick response is necessary when there is an injury or sudden illness. Getty Images (SolStock)

    Minutes count when someone is injured or becomes ill on the job. You can keep the situation from getting worse by providing the right type of first-aid treatment right away.

    Anyone who has been designated by an employer to provide first aid must have thorough training on how to respond to the injuries and illnesses anticipated in the workplace. Employees who are not designated first-aiders should know how to promptly report injuries and illnesses. Here are eight elements that can be used as a general introduction to first-aid programs.

    1. Introduce OSHA’s expectations for first-aid programs

    Where an accident is possible based on hazards and can result in suffocation, severe bleeding or other life-threatening or permanently disabling injury or illness, OSHA expects a three- to four-minute response time from the time of injury to the time of administering first aid. If such a life-threatening or serious injury is unlikely, OSHA allows a longer response time, such as 15 minutes.

    To ensure treatment is available within these time frames, OSHA requires the employer to train persons to render first aid when there’s no nearby hospital, clinic or infirmary that’s used to treat all injured or ill employees.

    First-aid providers perform the initial assessment of injuries and illnesses and provide immediate care and life support before emergency medical service (EMS) professionals arrive.

    2. Display your first-aid supplies

    First-aid supplies must be readily available in an emergency. There must be appropriate supplies (in adequate amounts) for the types of injuries and illnesses that are likely to occur based on an understanding of the activities in the workplace.

    OSHA says that medical personnel must be available to consult with the employer on matters of plant health. Employers can work with the medical professionals who treat injured employees to get help in determining what supplies should be in the facility’s first-aid kits and how many kits are needed.

    As guidance, employers can consult American National Standards Institute standard Z308.1, Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits. It describes two classes of basic kits.

    The Class A kit contains the following:

    • Adhesive bandages, 1 inch x 3 inch
    • Adhesive tape, 2.5 yards
    • Antibiotic ointment
    • Antiseptic
    • Breathing barrier
    • Gel-soaked burn dressing
    • Burn ointment
    • Cold pack
    • Eye covering with a means of attachment
    • Eye/skin wash
    • First-aid guide
    • Hand sanitizer
    • Medical examination gloves
    • Roller bandage, 2 inches
    • Scissors
    • Sterile pad, 3 inches x 3 inches
    • Trauma pad, 5 inches x 9 inches
    • Triangular bandage

    The Class B kit contains a larger quantity of all of the items listed in the Class A kit, and also includes:

    • Roller bandage, 4 inches
    • Splint
    • Tourniquet

    3. Emphasize the importance of first-aiders taking universal precautions to prevent exposure to bloodborne pathogens

    Blood can carry microorganisms such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that can cause serious diseases. OSHA’s bloodborne pathogens standard, 1910.1030, applies to all “occupational exposure” to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIMs). Employees who are expected to provide first aid as part of their job duties are covered by the standard.

    When a first-aid response involves exposure to blood and OPIMs, first-aiders must use “universal precautions.” This is an approach to infection control where all human blood and certain body fluids are treated as if they were known to be infectious for bloodborne pathogens. Wearing rubber exam gloves and protective clothing is part of following universal precautions.

    4. Explain how first-aid providers start by assessing the situation

    When first-aid providers arrive at an accident scene, they first evaluate what happened, how many people are injured, and whether it’s safe to enter the area. In serious situations, they’ll make sure EMS professionals are on the way.

    First-aiders must ensure their own safety before they can help the injured. They’ll consider everyone’s safety when they decide on making rescues and moving victims. They’ll assess the injuries of each victim. They’ll check for responsiveness, breathing, and circulation; and they’ll look for any medical alert tags a victim might be wearing.

    5. Outline first-aid response to life-threatening emergencies

    Life-threatening medical emergencies can involve conditions such as:

    • Chest pain
    • Stroke
    • Breathing problems
    • Allergic reactions
    • Seizures
    • Severe bleeding

    If an injury is life-threatening, first-aid providers are trained to:

    • Perform rescue breathing, perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation ( CPR), and use an automated external defibrillator ( AED)
    • Recognize the signs and symptoms of shock and provide treatment
    • Control bleeding with direct pressure
    • Provide other treatment to stabilize the victim

    6. Discuss AED programs

    OSHA’s Best Practices Guide: Fundamentals of a Workplace First-Aid Program says that an AED should be considered when selecting first-aid supplies.

    AEDs provide the critical and necessary treatment for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) caused by ventricular fibrillation. Ventricular fibrillation is the uncoordinated beating of the heart leading to collapse and death. An electric shock delivered by an AED can restore the heart to a normal rhythm. Using an AED within three to four minutes after the victim has suffered SCA significantly improves the survival rate.

    Administer CPR until the AED unit is brought to the victim. This basic form of life support uses chest compressions and artificial respiration.

    7. Outline some non-life-threatening emergencies encountered by first-aid providers

    First-aid providers know how to provide initial treatment for conditions such as:

    • Cuts, abrasions, puncture wounds, crushing injuries, and other wounds
    • Burns
    • Frostbite, hypothermia, heat stroke, and other temperature-related conditions
    • Sprains and strains
    • Eye injuries

    Even though these conditions may not be life-threatening, the victim may still need medical treatment beyond first aid.

    8. Summarize your program

    Every employee needs to know how to report a medical emergency. A quick response is necessary when there is an injury or sudden illness. However, the response needs to be made by personnel who have proper training.

    Judie Smithers is an editor at J. J. Keller & Associates, a compliance resource company that offers products and services to business professionals. Smithers’ subject matter expertise covers safety training, lockout/tagout, permit-required confined spaces, hearing conservation, exposure monitoring, personal protective equipment, asbestos, lead, radiation, and illumination. Previously, Smithers was the health and safety information coordinator for an industrial company.

    Click to see the NEW OSHA ANSI First Aid Kits! Click to see the NEW OSHA ANSI First Aid Kits!

    Well, last Friday it became Official.
    Business First Aid Kits are no longer compliant, unless upgraded t o the new minimum fill requirements.

    New ANSI Standards for First Aid Kits
    The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has changed the standard for first aid kits in the workplace.  The new standard went into effect June 17, 2016.  Are you ready for the change?

    Meet the New OSHA Standards 
    We offer a full line of kits to help meet the new ANSI standard and OSHA regulations.  Our professional customer service sales teams are ready for your questions.  Just give us a call today Toll Free (800) 933-8495.

    Some businesses will need 145 new items
    Depending on the type of business and number of employees, owners and managers will need to augment their current first aid kits with anywhere from a few dozen to 145 new items. Businesses that qualify to use class A ANSI first aid kits will need 22 more items, while Class B kits and cabinets will require 145 additional items.  In deciding which class of kit is more appropriate for a given workplace, employers should consider the risks and task load of the work environment and the potential severity and likelihood of occurrence of an injury. Employers should also consider whether multiple first aid kits are needed, based on the number of employees, physical layout of the work environment and the remoteness of the worksite to emergency services.

  • Beyond ANSI First Aid

    We've spent the last few weeks "Doing the ANSI Scramble" as our clients have been gearing up and either upgrading their first aid kits, or purchasing new ANSI 2015 first aid kits in order to comply with the new ANSI Z308.1-2015 Standard— Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies, which changes first aid kit requirements for every organization in the USA.

    But is that the end of it? It depends.

    First, there are special needs for certain types of businesses, especially ConstructionRestaurants and Foodservice, and companies with Commercial Fleet Vehicles or Trucking. Moreover, some States have additional requirements (California being a good example) and OSHA and various States have special first aid kit and supply requirements for Logging operations and other specialty fields of work.

    And then... there's the new ANSI Standard itself. While it specifies the exact minimum content for business first aid kits, it leaves it up to the employer to decide whthere the should get a Class A or Class B first aid kit and further which type of first aid kit case.

    ANSI says:

    In deciding which class of kit is more appropriate for a given workplace, employers should consider the risks and task load of the work environment and the potential severity and likelihood of occurrence of an injury. Employers should also consider whether multiple first aid kits are needed, based on the number of employees, physical layout of the work environment and the remoteness of the worksite to emergency services.

    Further, they note that an employer may wish to add yet more content to augment the minimum fill for specific situational needs: "These same considerations can be taken into account when determining if a first aid kit should be augmented with additional supplies, as noted in the appendix of this standard."

    The additional first aid supplies they list (and thereby implicitly recommend) are:

    Supplemental First Aid Supplies for Consideration – Applicable Environments

    It is recognized that each work environment is unique and it is expected that a first aid kit containing the minimum required first aid supplies will be augmented with additional items or additional quantities of required supplies based upon the specific hazards existing in a workplace environment. The selection of such items should be based on the recommendation and consultation of a person competent in first aid and cognizant of the hazards and on the number of people found in the workplace. Federal, state and local requirements should be consulted, where appropriate. Augment kits with the following first aid supplies, as applicable:

    FIRST AID SUPPLY PURPOSE
    Low dose aspirin Used to treat suspected heart attack
    Hemostatic agent For individuals with compromised clotting or uncontrollable bleeding
    Electrolyte replacement Heat-stress related injuries
    Glucose replacement Diabetic or hypoglycemic episodes
    Analgesics (oral and/or topical)/anti-inflammatory Pain management; swelling control
    Hydrocortisone Itchiness and skin-related reactions including rashes
    Antihistamine Allergic reactions
    Foil blanket Treat shock and/or cold-stress related injuries

    New ANSI First Aid Guidelines Knock Thousands of Companies out of Compliance

    Thousands of companies have purchased ANSI compliant first aid kits and cabinets since the American National Standards Institute last changed their Minimum URG-3683_2Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies in 2009. ANSI just made sweeping changes to these standards causing these previously “ANSI compliant” first aid kits to now fail compliance. The new 2015 ANSI Standard Z308.1-2015, which becomes effective this Friday, June 17th, adds significant new content changes for the minimum business first aid supplies.

    Since OSHA regulations for workplace first aid kits (29 CFR 1910.151, Appendix A) reference ANSI as the originator of first aid kit minimum contents requirements, OSHA compliant first aid kits will no longer be “OSHA compliant”, either. Further, of the 28 US States with their own State Plans, these plans have either adopt ANSI Standard as their outright guideline, or refer to it as the basis for the “minimum fill” requirements for compliance.

    What has changed?

    There are 12 new types of first aid items and significantly higher counts of previously ANSI standard first aid supplies required in these new ANSI workplace first aid kits that were never before required. This adds up to 22 additional pieces in the basic ANSI Class A workplace first aid kit, and a whopping 145 extra pieces in the ANSI Class B Kits and Cabinets.

    First-Aid-Product.com, the leading online seller of OSHA and ANSI First Aid Kits since 1993 has added over 100 new ANSI Standard first aid kits and cabinets, including refill and upgrade packs to help businesses comply with the new requirements economically. “Our customers purchase our kits specifically to assure their regulatory compliance,” explains First-Aid-Product.com’s Chad Balash, “knowing so many would want to replace their kits or upgrade, our Team scrambled to design easy ANSI upgrade packs and whole kit replacement content packs.” While many organizations will purchase new kits altogether, this group felt it was important to offer a more affordable solution.  “We offer every conceivable configuration of new ANSI first aid kit and cabinet with options from 10-200+ people served, Plastic or metal, Class A or B, Types I-IV, even Bilingual kits, Construction, Restaurant, and Vehicle in several colors, wall mountable, weatherproof and even soft bag ANSI Kits,” notes Balash, “but the average small business may not want to pay for a whole new kit, and businesses with wall mounted cabinets may not want to remove their existing cabinet – so we made easy packs available that our clientele can just insert in existing first aid boxes”

    According to OSHA First Aid Expert, Matthew Henry, “The ANSI Standard is the bare minimum any business should have in their workplace first aid kit.” Mr. Henry, author of the Occupational Health & Safety’s oft-cited The Do's & Don'ts of First Aid Compliance, explains “While specific industries such as welding, construction and logging have their own regulatory requirements, all safety regulations, from Fed OSHA to each OSHA-approved State plan refer to the ANSI Z308.1 standard requirements for compliance. If it were my business or a client I was advising; I would certainly opt for a $19 upgrade pack over risking thousands of dollars in fines.”

    If in doubt about your First Aid compliance needs, err on the side of caution: upgrade to the new ANSI 2015 First Aid Kit requirements by Friday, so if an Inspector walks in, you can show them you have the newly required first aid supplies on order.

    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.
