Dear Ms. Nichols:

This letter is in response to your question about first aid supplies required by businesses in OSHA Standard 1910.151 (b).

If there is an infirmary, clinic or hospital in the proximity of a retail store, then no first aid supplies are required by the standard. On the other hand, if no infirmary, clinic or hospital is within the proximity of a store, then a physician identified by the store owner shall determine the contents of a first-aid kit to meet the specific needs of each store.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,



Angela Presson M.D., M.P.H.
Medical Officer
Office of Occupational Medicine
