Be it running a company or working for one, you need to know what is recommended for first aid treatment and preparedness protocols. There are groups like Raise Your Hand trying to spread awareness, and of course the United States Department of Labor: Occupational Safety & Health Administration (commonly known as OSHA) does its part to spread the word too.
Here’s how OSHA puts it:
It is a requirement of OSHA that employees be given a safe and healthy workplace that is reasonably free of occupational hazards. However, it is unrealistic to expect accidents not to happen. Therefore, employers are required to provide medical and first aid personnel and supplies commensurate with the hazards of the workplace. The details of a workplace medical and first aid program are dependent on the circumstances of each workplace and employer.
OSHA even provides general information that may be of assistance here.
Here at Think Safe we spend a lot of time and energy into making sure our products not only meet OSHA’s standards, but exceed them as well. Be it the First Aid Cube, our Online Training, top-rated ResQr First Aid & CPR Coach, or the American Lifeguard Association-endorsed Emergency Instruction Device, the First Voice line of products are setting new standards in emergency first aid preparedness for the home or business.
Minimum’s mentality will never do when it comes to saving a life. Why risk everything by not taking the appropriate actions to ensure the safety of your loved ones and employees? If you need more encouragement, just remember that Uncle Sam says so too.
