Greetings all,


I’m taking an informal poll…


Is it required to provide first aid training for personnel in academic research labs that have simple first aid kits.


If so, is it given to everyone in the lab or limited to the PI’s and lab managers or supervisors?


Is the content of the training at an awareness level (that is adequate to apply a Band-Aid and call for help) or equivalent to Red Cross first aid training?


Many thanks,




Christopher E. Kohler, MS, LPG, CCHO
