Why Use a First Aid Service?

first aid service

Do you have the right first aid kits in your facility? How often do you inspect and replenish your first aid kits? Do you have first aid kits that meet the standards and requirements set by OSHA and ANSI for the type and size of your workplace?

If these questions overwhelm you, it might be time to sign up for a first aid service for your business. 

When you work with a reliable first aid service provider, you can expect:

1. Accuracy

The legal obligations surrounding workplace first aid kits can be quite a handful. There are a set of standards by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and another defined and categorized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) with which you need to comply. 

Having a third-party first aid service provider overseeing even the smallest details of your kits in the workplace will ensure that you will have legally-compliant first aid kids at your facility, ready to use should the need arise. 

2. Convenience and Efficiency

First aid kits are a perfect example of a collection of items that you absolutely need at home and at work, but hope to never have to use. Because of the infrequency of emergencies, it is not unusual for cotton pads and gauzes to discolor, burn ointments to go past their expiration date, or sanitary gloves to dry up and become brittle from disuse. Some items run out faster than others. 

These are the things that you would not have to take care of nor worry about if you have a trusty first aid service company working for you. They’ll make sure that every last item in your kits are up to date and in ample supply. That’s one huge thing to tick off of your to-do list!  

3. Quality

First aid service providers often have access to suppliers and wholesale discounts that most companies do not. This gives you an opportunity to fill your workplace’s first aid kits with items that are of better quality than most over-the-counter items that you would have gotten without their help.
