First Aid Supplies on line has responded this spring with a great selection for first aid kits that meet or exceed the new ANSI Z308.1-2009 standard. This ANSI standard is the standard that OSHA refers to as “the minimum requirement for a workplace first aid kit.”
In earlier posts we covered the new standard and you can refer to it if you need to refresh your memory. Z308.1-2009
The purposed of this post is to help you select the most appropriate ANSI first aid kit for your situation. Keep in mind that all of the wall mountable, industrial first aid kits offered at First Aid Supplies Online all meet or exceed the new ANSI Standard .
We want to address here the smaller kits for other types of applications.
We offer three small complete kits and an ANSI refill kit in the event that you already have first aid kit boxes and just want to reload these existing kits with the right stuff.
In that case you want the .34ANSI. This is a refill that provides all ten of the required items that you can put into a container of your choice. (outdoor application require a rust and water resistant box) or plastic.
If you want an ANSI kit in a rugged steel container then you want the 3510ANSI
This kit provides the ten required items in a rugged, steel ten unit first aid kit box.
This kit would make a great vehicle or small job box kit.
If you are just looking to make your first aid dollars go as far as they can then you want the 3416ANSI which provides the ten required items in an economy plastic 16 unit kit box. Currently on sale for just $13.95
If you are looking to maximize your value then you want the 3416PANSI our ANSI First Aid Kit Deluxe. This kit provides the ten required items listed in the ANSI standard as well as the ten suggested items. When you look at all you get in this kit you realize what a tremendous value this kit is. Whichever way you go, your on your way to OSHA First Aid Kit Compliance.
