New First Aid ANSI Standard in 2015
ANSI Standards for First Aid Kits have recently been updated
The ANSI Standard for First Aid kits changed in June 2015. The revised assortment and quantity of supplies included in a first aid kit were chosen based upon a review of increased workplace incidents requiring first aid treatment, similar international standards, and current practices in treating injuries.
The revision includes two new classes of first aid kits,
- Class A: Designed for the most common workplace injuries (minor cuts, sprains, abrasions)
- Class B: Designed for more complex or high-risk environments
Our First Aid Specialists will be contacting current First Aid customers about recommended updates to maintain compliance with the new standard. If you are not a first aid customer, please contact us for complimentary first aid facility assessment.
