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. Hawaii has its own Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) plan. The state's first-aid requirements are identical to those of the federalOccupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). There is additional information and a detailed discussion of workplace first-aid requirements. Please see the national First Aid section.
A person who gratuitously provides emergency care in good faith at the scene of an emergency or accident is immune from civil liability for acts or omissions that may have been performed in providing such care. However, the law includes an exception to this immunity if the acts or omissions amount to gross negligence or wanton acts or omissions (HI Rev. Stat. Sec. 663-1.5).
