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. Idaho does not 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. Check your municipal codes for local requirements. There is additional information and a detailed discussion of workplace first-aid requirements in the private sector. Please see the national First Aid section. .
A person who provides emergency care in good faith at the scene of an emergency or accident is immune from civil liability for acts he or she may have performed (or omitted) in providing such emergency care; there is an exception if these acts or omissions amount to gross negligence. This immunity from liability does not extend to employees trained in health care who render emergency care for pay or with the expectation of being paid (ID Code Sec. 5-330).
