Have you ever utilized a first aid service before? Do you know that such a service exists?
Often times businesses attempt to handle the first aid and safety needs for their company by themselves. Perhaps this is possible when a company is small and has only a few employees. However, through the challenges of a company growing and becoming more viable in its industry, first aid and safety needs could begin to take a backseat, leaving them vulnerable.
Having a first aid service company manage your first aid and safety needs can be very beneficial. This will allow you focus on your business, its growth and more complex issues that come with that. In addition, it will ensure that you have an adequate supply of products to meet or exceed the latest A.N.S.I or O.S.H.A standards, and help you understand and comply with those standards. Having this service could also have a positive impact on employee morale and increased productivity.
In this article we are going to go over the recommended fill list for an industrial first aid cabinet.
The areas of first aid that your business first aid cabinet should cover as A.N.S.I defines them are:
- Minor woundsBandages
- Major woundsCompresses
- BurnsBurn gels
- ice packs
- Eye injuriesEyewash
- Eye cups
- Personal comfortAnalgesics
Putting together a first aid program yourself that meets the above areas can be a real challenge. It could be difficult to source all of these items, especially in single unit dose packaging that helps to mitigate cross-contamination. Most items sold and purchased through pharmacies or large box stores are meant for personal or home first aid kits.
A service company like Green Guard will meet with you and your team to design a program based on your needs and environment. Knowing that your first aid and safety needs are being handled by professionals from Green Guard, will allow you to put your mind at rest and focus on other areas of your business.
