What are the required components to the first aid kits in your labs? I see the ANSI Z308 1-2003 Standard includes burn treatment and antiseptic. I remember being told in a first aid class a few years ago that we should never apply any other treatment than band-aids or gauze. Burn and antiseptic ointments should be left to emergency personnel only. As such, our first aid kits contain gloves, gauze pads, and band-aids only.
What do you teach or recommend?
