OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA's website at

Dear Mr. Ford:

This letter will serve as an update in our effort to review the audio/visual portion of your Medic First Aid Program.

Unfortunately, we have not been able to obtain a set of this material and therefore a review has not been possible. Should you wish us to complete a review of the entire program so it may be seen in context and for further evaluation, it is suggested that we be provided with the audio/visual set, as well as any updated written material. In the meantime, any further review will be held in abeyance.

Be assured we will continue to be more than willing to complete an assessment of the entire program to determine its equivalency to nationally recognized programs in support of the OSHA standards.


John B. Miles, Jr., Director
Directorate of Field Operations
