Designing an OSHA-Compliant First Aid Program

According to OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.151(b), employers must ensure prompt first aid treatment for injured employees, either by providing for the availability of trained first aid providers at the worksite, or by ensuring that emergency treatment services are within reasonable proximity of the worksite.

  • One option provided to employers is to ensure that members of their workforce have been trained in first aid, including CPR. This option is, for most employers, a feasible and low-cost way to protect employees, while putting the employer clearly in compliance with the standards.
  • First aid supplies are required to be readily available for use by an employer’s first responder in the treatment of an injured employee. OSHA references American National Standard (ANSI) Z308.1-2009 "Minimum Requirements for Workplace First-aid Kits" as an example of the minimal contents of a basic first aid kit. It is up to the employer to determine the need for additional first aid supplies based upon the number of employees on-site and the specific hazards existing in a particular work environment.
  • If it is reasonably anticipated that employees will be exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials while using first aid supplies, employers are required to provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in compliance with the provisions of the Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens standard, § 1910.1030(d)(3) (56 FR 64175). This standard lists appropriate PPE for this type of exposure, such as gloves, gowns, face shields, masks, and eye protection.
  • OSHA recommends all worksites as potential candidates for an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program. Employers should asses their own requirements for the deployment of AEDs as part of their first aid program.
  • An employer who contemplates relying on assistance from outside emergency responders as an alternative to providing a first-aid-trained employee must take appropriate steps prior to any incident (such as making arrangements with the service provider) to ascertain that emergency medical assistance will be promptly available when an injury occurs (generally understood to be within 3-4 minutes).
Visit to view the complete standard, as well as other resources available to help you ensure a safe, compliant first aid program. Please note, twenty-six states, including California, operate their own OSH Aapproved occupational safety and health programs. These states adopt and enforce their own standards, which may have different requirements from the federal standards regarding medical services and supplies. Magid encourages you to research your own state requirements as part of designing, reviewing and implementing your own first aid program. Periodic reviews of your program and possible changes in federal and state requirements should be conducted to insure you are in compliance.
