REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS The Code of Federal Regulation for General Industry, CFR 1910.151(b) Medical Services and First Aid, states: “(b) In the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid…” Also, Louisiana Department of Labor Workers’ Compensation 10-Point Safety Plan requires a trained person on every jobsite on every shift. (The full text and clarification of training requirements can be found at and respectively.) With few exceptions, every employer, regardless of size, is required to have enough employees trained in First Aid & CPR to quickly respond to the injuries which can be reasonably expected to occur in the workplace.
