New Mexico First Aid: What you need to know

The level of first-aid services maintained will depend on the hazards normally present at the worksite. Both the law and good common sense require at least a basic level of readiness. New Mexico has its own Occupational Safety and Health regulatory program that governs worker safety in both private and public sector workplaces. The state has adopted the first-aid requirements of the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act by reference. Therefore, the federal OSH Act's standards govern workplace health and safety. See the national FIRST AID analysis for a detailed discussion of workplace first-aid requirements.

Note: Failure to comply with this requirement is among the top 10 violations cited by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).

No person who comes to the aid or rescue of another person by providing care or assistance in good faith at or near the scene of an emergency can be held liable for any civil damages as a result of any act or omission in providing care or assistance, except if the act or omission amounts to gross negligence. This protection does not apply to the provision of emergency care or assistance when it is rendered for pay or with the expectation of being paid; it also does not apply if care or assistance is rendered by a person or agent of a principal who was at the scene of the accident or emergency because he or his principal was soliciting business or performing or seeking to perform some services for payment (NM Stat. Sec. 24-10-3).
