The federally published OSHA regulations entitled, “Medical Services and First Aid – 29 CFR 1910.151,” describes the necessary guidelines for providing first aid in an industrial setting. More specifically “Medical Services and First Aid – 29 CFR 1910.151(b),” states that someone who administers first aid to employees or coworkers should be trained to properly do so. The regulation continues by declaring, “Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.”
These OSHA regulations are used as a guideline for employees and staff on the use and proper administration of first aid.
