First-Aid Kits for Research Laboratories

Learn how to obtain and restock a laboratory first-aid kit.

PIs or department representatives are responsible for obtaining a first-aid kit and periodically restocking and removing of expired items. First-aid supplies must be easily accessible and available to staff at all times.  All personnel must be aware of the location of the first-aid kit.  All first-aid kits used at UCSD must have, as a minimum, the items outlined in this list of research first-aid kit items. Where special hazards are present (e.g., calcium gluconate for hydrofluoric acid, etc.) additional items may be necessary.  Review the laboratory-approved Hazard Control Plan for details.
