First Aid
National Summary
First aid generally includes any onetime treatment and follow-up for minor injuries, including cuts, abrasions, bruises, first-degree burns, sprains, and splinters plus emergency cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). One or several workers should be properly trained to administer basic first aid, including CPR. There must be a well-stocked first-aid kit accessible to all employees. The federal Occupational, Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not require employers to record injuries that only require first aid on OSHA injury and illness forms. OSHA encourages the placement and use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the workplace. Employers who designate one or more employees to administer first aid as part of their job duties must comply with the requirements of the bloodborne pathogens rule.
