Alabama First Aid laws & HR compliance analysis

Alabama 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. Alabama does not have its own occupational safety and health regulatory program for private sector (private businesses and nonprofit organizations) employers. Therefore, in the private sector, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act governs first-aid requirements. There are no first-aid regulatory requirements for public sector (government offices and operations) workplaces in Alabama. Check your municipal codes for local requirements. There is a detailed discussion of workplace first-aid requriements in the private sector.

Any doctor, dentist, nurse, rescue squad member, police officer, or any other person who voluntarily renders first aid or emergency care at the scene of an accident will not be liable for any civil damages as a result of acts or omissions in giving first aid or emergency care, nor for any failure to provide or arrange for further medical treatment for the injured person (AL Code Sec. 6-5-332).
