New ANSI Guidelines – Why your first aid kit needs an upgrade
Whether at home, at work or in the factory, it’s important to be prepared to treat minor injuries. But even if you have a kit, it may no longer cover incidents that are now more prevalent than they had been.   » » » 

Whether at home, at work or in the factory, it’s important to be prepared to treat minor injuries. But even if you have a kit, it may no longer cover incidents that are now more prevalent than they had been. The International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) just released its 2015 minimum requirements for workplace first aid kits and supplies (American National Standard ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2015). The 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.

Below is a list of contents for the 2 classes of ANSI kits. For other compliance information feel free to contact us at (800) 347-3494.
