In June of 2015, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) approved an update to the ANSI/ISEA Z308.1 Standard: Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies. The standard is set to go into effect June 2016.

OSHA’s medical service and first aid regulation, 29 CFR 1910.151(b) states:

In the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid. adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.

The new ANSI Z308.1-2015 update now includes two classes of first aid kits, based on the contents and quantity of first aid supplies included in those kits. Class A kits are designed for the most common workplace injuries. Class B kits have a wider range of supplies to deal with more complex injuries or high-risk environments. The 2015 update also designates first aid kits by Type (I, II, III, or IV). The Type is determined by the work environment where the kit will be used.  Download our ANSI Z308.1-2015 Fast Facts sheet for more information on the update as well as a comparison between the -1998 and -2015 edition of the standard.

It’s been a long time coming! Cut protection has been exploding as a topic of interest in the safety industry for many years now. Despite the advancements in cut protective gloves there is still confusion about what standard to use or the necessary cut protection needed for the application.

According to the National Safety Council, a single hand laceration can cost over $12,000 in direct and related costs, if a tendon is severed, the cost can approach $70,000.

Proposed changes have been submitted to bring together the U.S. standard ANSI/ISEA 105 and the European standard EN 388.  Read more of this OH&S Magazine “New Global Standards for Protective Gloves are Coming” by Jill A Conley…
