ANSI Z 308.1-2015 Guidelines

OSHA (U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is the main federal agency charged with the enforcement of safety and health legislation.  OSHA regulations regarding first aid kits are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations under section 29 CFR 1910.151 and in Appendix A.  OSHA does not provide specifications for the first aid contents per se but defines mandatory requirements for availability of kits on worksites.  In Appendix A of the OSHA guidelines, ANSI (American National Standards Institute) is referenced as the originator of first aid kit specifications and minimum content requirements.

The 2015 ANSI revision introduces two classes of first aid kits
Class A: Kits with contents designed to deal with the most common types of workplace injuries
Class B: Kits with a broader range and quantity of supplies to deal with injuries in more complex or high-risk environments
