50 Person First Aid Kit, ANSI B, Plastic Case, WeatherproofWhat is ANSI?
The American National Standards Institute publishes minimum standards of quality for many items related to safety.

Do they have a minimum content requirement for first aid?
Yes, to be ANSI compliant a first aid kit must have the required minimum fill according to standard ISEA / ANSI Z308.1-2015.

Is ANSI mandatory?
No, BUT there are more than 20 states that have adopted ANSI standards as their state recommended requirements.

Why ANSI?
OSHA requires adequate first aid supplies to be available in the workplace but they don't require any specific contents. By recommending a specific fill, one will be guaranteed to find necessary items in an ANSI kit.

Does ANSI affect unitized colors?
Yes, one of the most important parts of ANSI Z308.1-2015 is the standardization of colors on unitized refills. Bandages, Antiseptics, Burn Treatment, PPE and Misc items will each have their own color. This standardization will make it easy to recognize product quickly in an emergency.
