industrial first aid kit First Aid Kit Requirements - 29 CFR 1910.151

29 CFR 1910.151(b). requires that First aid supplies are to be readily available. For suggested kit contents reference American National Standard (ANSI) Z308.1-1998 Minimum Requirements for Workplace First-aid Kits. Make sure that the contents of the kit listed in the ANSI standard are adequate for small worksites. For larger operations, or when multiple operations are being conducted at the same location, employers should determine the need for additional first aid kits at the worksite or additional types of first aid equipment and supplies and additional quantities and types of supplies and equipment in the first aid kits.

If employees will be exposed to blood or other potentially infectious materials while using first aid supplies, employers are required to provide appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) in compliance with the provisions of the Occupational Exposure to Blood borne Pathogens standard, 1910.1030(d)(3) (56 FR 64175). This standard lists appropriate PPE for this type of exposure, such as gloves, gowns, face shields, masks, and eye protection.
