First Aid Kits: What You Need To Know



First aid means just that, the first aid. Your crew members are the first responders to an incident and they must have the training and supplies to handle minor injuries that can be managed on-site to severe injuries that must be managed until emergency medical services arrive. First aid training will help them react appropriately in a calm, efficient manner rather than waste valuable minutes panicking about what to do. Knowing what first aid supplies they have available and understanding the when, how, and why to use them is a key element of preparation.To get more news about hemostatic dressing, you can visit rusuntacmed.com official website.

While at least two workers on every crew must be trained in first aid/CPR, every field employee should be trained for a situation where they might need to apply first aid treatments. A well-stocked and ready-to-use first aid kit is one of the best ways to prepare for emergencies. Having access to a first aid kit doesn’t just come in handy for minor injuries, it can be the difference in saving someone’s life.
A first aid kit must be with every field crew but what must be in the first aid kit? Too many crews have never opened their first aid kit. It remains in their truck, only to be opened when an emergency arises. And how many kits in rusty metal boxes have remained unopened for years? There are several serious issues with neglecting first aid kits.

First, every first aid kit should be inspected at least monthly, better weekly, to be sure they contain the proper supplies, and are in adequate quantities, to respond to an incident. A label on the cover of the kit can be used to note the inspection date. Another common practice is to clip the kit latch with a plastic tie. If the tie is cut, the inspector knows someone got into the kit and pulls some of the supplies out since the last inspection.

Second, everything expires at some point and periodically even unused supplies must be discarded and replaced. Third, just as our Z133 Safety Requirements for Arboricultural Operations updates and changes safety procedures, the Z308.1 Minimum Requirements for First Aid Kits updates first aid kit requirements.

OSHA does not set first aid kit requirements for arboricultural operations. However, they do require that every employer stock first aid kits that reflect the hazards and the possible first aid needs for the job. The Z308.1 reflects this requirement by dividing first aid kits into two broad categories; Class A: low-risk, general workplace, and Class B: high-risk, industrial workplace. The Class B kits have a broader range of supplies and quantities to deal with the injuries that may occur in the tree worker’s high-risk work environment. Here is an inside look at the first aid kit that tree crews must carry with them daily.
Anatomy of your first aid kit
Each Class B first aid kit contains supplies to address five common first aid needs; 1) bleeding, 2) musculoskeletal injuries, 3) burns, 4) eye injuries and 5) CPR. The kit must also include a first aid guide. An important note: many first aid supplies, such as a tourniquet, require training. This is why it’s not enough to have the kit, at least two crew members should know how to properly use everything in the kit!
Dressings and bandages for managing bleeding
Dressings are the absorption material that manages bleeding and protects the wound. Bandages are what hold them in place and apply pressure. These are the most common items found in first aid kits. Adhesive bandages, 1-inch by 3-inches (2.5 x 7.5 cm), for the minor cuts and scrapes that may occur in any workplace environment to sterile pads, 3-inches by 3-inches (7.5 x 7.5 cm), and trauma pads, 5-inches by 9-inches (12.7 x 22.9 cm), for managing severe bleeding.
A specific requirement of Class B first aid kits is a tourniquet (at least 1-inch, 2.5 cm, wide), to manage bleeding from amputations or deep lacerations.

Antiseptic and antibiotic substances are also included in the kit to protect the wound and reduce infection. Examination gloves are also part of the kit to protect the first aid provider. While not specified, the preferred material for the gloves is nitrile as some people are allergic to latex and vinyl does not provide sufficient protection from blood-borne pathogens. An item missing from the list for a Class B first aid kit but must be included is a bag specifically for bio-waste, the contaminated gloves, and labeled for this use.
