Maine First Aid: What you need to know

Maine does not have federal approval to regulate occupational safety and health in private (businesses and nonprofit organizations) sector workplaces in the state. Therefore, in the private sector, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) governs workplace health and safety. There is a detailed discussion on workplace health and safety.

Maine regulates occupational safety and health only in public (state, county, and local government agencies, school systems, and commissions) sector workplaces. The Maine Department of Labor/Bureau of Labor Standards/Public Sector Enforcement Program enforces occupational safety and health regulations in public sector workplaces. Maine has adopted the federal first-aid rules by reference. There is more information about state safety and health requirements.
Any person (including members or employees of nonprofit volunteer or governmental ambulance, rescue, or emergency units, even if the members or employees receive compensation) who voluntarily and without expectation of compensation from the person aided renders first aid, emergency treatment, or rescue assistance will not be liable for injuries sustained as a result of any act or omission unless they were caused willfully, wantonly, recklessly, or by gross negligence on the part of such person. This immunity does not apply if such first aid or emergency treatment or assistance is given at a hospital or clinic (ME Rev. Stat. Tit. 14 Sec. 164).
