The Occupational Safety and Health Act provides guidance and information on developing effective first-aid arrangements for every workplace. The purpose of this guidance is to minimise the consequences of injury until the service of a nurse or doctor gets available. The first-aid bit is really important to treat minor injuries. OHSA the sub-agency of U.S. Department of Labour has set the standards for the minimum acceptable number and type of supplies that should be maintained as first-aid kits at a workplace. The contents should be adequate for four-five employees working at a small workplace. For the bigger workplace the same contents can be maintained at four-five different places. These first aid kits

The kit should contain: 4-by-4-inch gauze pads 8-by-10-inch gauze pads Bandaids Gauze roller bandages which are two inches wide Triangular bandages Scissors Tweezers Latex gloves Blanket Wound cleaning agent Adhesive tape Elastic wraps Resuscitation bag Splint Sterile water Starlit eyelids with bandage attached Individually wrapped disinfectant wipes Directions for requesting emergency assistance In addition to these there should be provisions for cleaning hazardous or biological spillages as well. They cannot be dealt with ordinary means and therefore require articles like sanitizers hand sanitizers air sanitizer stain remover sharps boxes and disinfectants for various other things. In the case of emergency cleaning or first aid help the first aid provider should also be protected against any kind of infection or health hazard. This means that he too should have his protective shield in form of gloves apron face shields disposable bags and etc. This prevents all the chances of cross contamination. Thus we see how these small things can initially give a bigger aid to injuries. But this concept also involves one more face to it. The staff or the employees at the

Yes they should be well aware of possible injuries that can happen in their workplace and what they are supposed to apply to the injured person in case of various injuries. They must know where the first aid boxes are kept and when they should refill them. In the end we can only say that educating and training the employees for safety is far cheaper and easier than the actual accident taking place. The employers should take responsibility for it and should always remember that a safe workplace keeps the employee motivated.
