The International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) has released an updated standard focusing on minimum requirements for workplace first aid kits, after being approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2009 American National Standard – a revision to the 2003 edition, was prepared by members of ISEA’s Industrial First Aid Group, along with leading industry stakeholders.
Think Safe Inc was included in the preparation process as one of the industry stakeholders (as can be seen listed in the Foreword of the ISEA standard document).
“It’s an honor to be a part of the review team responsible for setting new standards in first aid. That is, after all, one of the main goals for Think Safe – innovating first aid technology and setting new standards in the field,” Paula Wickham (CEO/President of Think Safe).
Updates include the designation of new kit types, expansion of the required supply list to include a first aid guide and a redesign of the product label to draw attention to the fact that each workplace is unique and therefore may necessitate the availability of additional first aid supplies.
All Think Safe first aid kits exceed ANSI/ISEA standards and vary in size and purpose. Check out the First Aid Kits here!
