ISEA Seeks Comments by Sept. 22 on Revised First Aid Kit Standard

ISEA is asking for comments as it prepares the next edition of ANSI/ISEA Z308.1, the American National Standard Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits. ISEA's First Aid Group developed proposed new edition in cooperation with industry stakeholders. Member companies of the First Aid Group include ARI, Jackson Safety, 3M Company, MSA, and North Safety Products.

ISEA's announcement says significant changes in this draft version include designation of new kit types, expansion of the required supply list to include a first aid guide and antibiotic treatment, and a redesigned label. The recommended supplies list has been expanded to include hand sanitizers in response to updated hygiene protocols, and the label has been redesigned to draw specific attention to the fact every workplace is unique, which may require the availability of additional first aid supplies.

For a review copy of the draft, contact ISEA Manager of Standards Programs Cristine Fargo at 703-525-1695. Review copies are $25 each.
