OSHA standard 1910.151 requires employers to train a certain number of employees, depending on the size of the organization, to administer first aid. Employers are also required to maintain an adequate first aid kit on site, including both normal first aid interventions and site-specific first aid treatment materials. In addition to covering general first aid, basic first aid training covers bloodborne pathogens in detail according to American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) standards.
Employees who volunteer to complete first aid training must first complete an interview. The interview will assess whether the employee is prepared to administer first aid in an industrial setting. The course costs $30 per person, which includes the cost of books.Back to blog list
