First Aid Kits and Pre-Stocked EMS First Responder Bags by Lightning X Products

Andy Spivey – Product Manager

What do you need in your First Aid Kit? As always, OSHA requires that a workplace assess the hazards present first. However, OSHA also references the ANSI standard as an example of minimum first aid kit requirements. As of January 12, 2015, those standards have been revised. The specific minimum requirements for a Class A first aid kit have been increased from 10 to 18 items.

The ANSI requirements can be a good starting point for your First Aid Kit needs, but we recommend adding more items based not only on the number of employees at your job site, but also proportionate to the hazards specific to your industry. Below is a list of the ANSI requirements for a Class A first aid kit:

16 Adhesive Bandages 1×3 inches
1 Adhesive Tape 2.5 yards total
10 Antibiotic Applications (Increased) .14 fl. ounces

Lightning X Products offers a number of kits ranging from a basic first aid kit through a fully stocked emergency medical trauma bag. Our basic LXFAK1-FY kit contains 104 items yet is small enough to store in the glove compartment of your car.

From there we offer five distinct fill kits that are tailored to meet the demands of any situation varying from basic first aid to advanced life support trained paramedics. Each of these kits can be purchased as a stand-alone kit or added to any Lightning X medical bag. We have designed the contents of each of these kits after hours of research and feedback from our customers and professional EMS personnel in the field. Every one of our medical fill kits are assembled in house by our friendly staff, including many current and former first responders.
