Delaware law does not require the provision of first aid in the workplace, nor does the state have its own occupational safety and health plan for private employers. Therefore, in the private sector, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) governs workplace health and safety. There are no enforceable workplace safety and health rules to govern public sector (government offices and operations) workplaces in the state. There is additional information and a detailed discussion. Please see the national First Aid section.
Any person (including members or employees of nonprofit volunteer or government ambulance, rescue, or emergency units, even if the members or employees receive compensation) who voluntarily, 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. This immunity does not apply if such first aid or emergency treatment or assistance is given at a hospital or clinic (DE Code Tit. 16 Sec. 6801).
