The 2009 version of the standard is being revised, and public and stakeholder comments are being accepted by ISEA.

ISEA Accepting Comments on Revised First Aid Kit Standard

Sept. 8 is the deadline for submitting comments on the revision of ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2009.

ISEA is inviting members of the public and stakeholders to comment on a proposed revision to ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2009, Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies. The proposed revision would classify first aid kits based on the assortment and quantity of first aid supplies intended to deal with most types of injuries and sudden illnesses encountered in the workplace, including major and minor wounds, minor burns, sprains, strains, and eye injuries.

According to ISEA, the assortment and quantity of supplies included in a kit "were chosen based upon a review of increased workplace incidents requiring first aid treatment, similar international standards and current practices in treating injuries. The proposed revision introduces two classes of first aid kits: Class A kits with contents designed to deal with most common types of workplace injuries, and Class B kits with a broader range and quantity of supplies to deal with injuries in more complex or high-risk environments."

The comment deadline is Sept. 8. To receive a copy of the draft standard (there is a $30 charge) and a comment form, or for more information, contact ISEA Director of Member and Technical Services Cristine Fargo (cfargo@safetyequipment.org).
