About the American Red Cross
The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. It provides relief to victims of disaster and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. The Red Cross is not a government agency and it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its humanitarian work.
A workplace first aid program is part of a comprehensive safety and health management system that includes first aid supplies and training in first aid and CPR. The Federal OSHA first aid standard (29 CFR 1910.151) generally requires employers to have people trained in first aid and to have adequate quantities of first aid supplies readily available. In addition to the basic minimum requirements, employers are responsible for determining the need for additional types and quantities of first aid supplies and equipment unique to their workplace by reviewing their log of work-related injuries and illnesses and other records.
Employers are required to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) when employees could be exposed to blood and other potentially infectious materials. In addition, employers are required to have suitable equipment for quick drenching or flushing of the eyes and body if exposed to injurious materials.
