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. South Carolina's state health and safety code, applicable to private (private businesses and nonprofit organizations) and public (government agencies, public school systems, commissions) sector employers, has adopted the occupational safety standards set by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) (SC Regs. 71-600).
Additional information on workplace first-aid requirements is available.
