In determining the workplace first aid kit classification, size, and number, the organization should consider
- The level of risk for the specific workplace environment; Note: Additional workplace first aid kits might be required, depending on the outcome of a workplace first aid risk assessment. For guidance on conducting a workplace first aid risk assessment, see Annexes A and B.
- The layout of the workplace (e.g., multi-level workplaces, high-rises);
- The distance from emergency medical services and/or the response time for emergency medical services; Note: Response times for emergency medical services vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. In addition, response time can be impacted by the type of workplace being served (e.g., a high-rise building).
- That workplaces with a small number of employees dispersed over a wide area could have differing first aid requirements in different areas; and
- That workers in remote or isolated areas could require additional first aid equipment and supplies.
