Nebraska 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 workplace health and safety. There are no first-aid regulatory requirements for public sector (government offices and operations) workplaces. 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.
No person who renders emergency care at the scene of an accident or other emergency gratuitously may be held liable for any civil damages as a result of any act or omission in giving the emergency care or as a result of any act or failure to act to provide or arrange for medical treatment or care for the injured person (NE Rev. Stat. Sec. 25-21,186).
