This topic covers first aid requirements for construction employers. First aid includes any one-time treatment and follow-up for observation of minor injuries, including cuts, abrasions, bruises, first-degree burns, sprains, and splinters. OSHA requires that construction employers ensure the ready availability of medical personnel for advice on matters of health in the workplace. Job sites should have a well-stocked, weatherproof first-aid kit and meet additional requirements based on the specifics of site.
