Not many people realize it is an OSHA requirement to have a certain number of first aid items available in their first aid kits. Most kits have the required amount of items, but it's always good to have a refresher list to remind you what you need. Here's a list of OSHA required items for your kit:

  1. Gauze pads (at least 4 x 4 inches).
  2. Two large gauze pads (at least 8 x 10 inches).
  3. Box adhesive bandages (band-aids).
  4. One package gauze roller bandage at least 2 inches wide.
  5. Two triangular bandages.
  6. Wound cleaning agent such as sealed moistened towelettes.
  7. Scissors.
  8. At least one blanket.
  9. Tweezers.
  10. Adhesive tape.
  11. Latex gloves.
  12. Resuscitation equipment such as resuscitation bag, airway, or pocket mask.
  13. Two elastic wraps.
  14. Splint.
  15. Directions for requesting emergency assistance.
