Stocking HART Health Industrial First Aid Supplies Helps Meet OSHA Guidelines


Providing first aid basics is critical in the event of workplace accidents but the little stuff is what adds up, and fast. U.S companies lose more than $61 billion in employee time from simple headaches and pains each year. The cost to supply medication to relieve such discomfort is pennies a day.

Most companies stock industrial pack versions of over-the-counter medications for pain and other routine ailments. Most first aid cabinets typically stock these OTC medications:

● A range of pain medications including ibuprofen and acetaminophen

● Back pain relievers

● Allergy medications

● Cold and flu remedies

● Upset stomach and heartburn medicines

Different workplaces have different needs. The types of potential injuries at a food processing facility, for example, aren’t the same as the ones found in a busy customer call center. In addition to the OSHA required minimums, companies often carry a range of first aid supplies to meet local and state regulations or items specific to an industry. Other commonly stocked items include:

● Fingertip adhesive bandages (common in restaurants and manufacturing)

● Blue metallic waterproof adhesive bandages for food service (mandated by the FDA)

● Waterproof adhesive bandages that can be worn under gloves

● Knuckle adhesive bandages

● Eye wash and eye wash stations

● Splinter removers

● Hand sanitizer

HART Health provides all of them – basic and specialized industrial first-aid supplies designed for the workplace. The regulations and first-aid supply requirements for some specialized industries are more involved. The specific industries identified by OSHA are:

● 1910.146 Permit-required Confined Spaces

● 1910.266 Appendix B: Logging Operations – First-Aid and CPR Training

● 1910.269 Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution

● 1910.410 Qualifications of Dive Team

● 1926.950 Construction, Power Transmission and Distribution

HART Health prides itself on designing the highest quality industrial first aid products, bulk first aid supplies, and medications in the industry. Regardless of the type of workplace, first-aid supplies and over-the-counter medications are only useful if they are in stock and easy to find.
