I spent a couple of months in San Jose a couple of years ago transferring a firm outta California. I was in awe at the wall mounted medical kit they had. It addressed every ailment known to man. I found out every high tech business in the state were given one and could be for every business for all I know.

Probably give them the kit but it comes with a resupply contract. Some shmoe is probably visiting each location (for a insane monthly fee) restocking the boxes as needed.

Should have googled it first. Here you go. First Aid Cabinets - Commercial First Aid Cabinets | Cintas

Looks like a standard Cintas First Aid box. Fairly common for businesses not quite large enough to have an on-site nurse or anything. Same company that rents uniforms and does floor mat service. They come in every so often and restock the box and bill the company for what was used out of it. No idea of the upfront or ongoing cost but they're pretty nice to have around.

The Cintas kits are what is similar back of house at almost every casino, theater, convention center, brothel, dispensary in town. Compared to ordering, stocking and monitoring every cabinet in the theater it’s not a bad deal. We have 12 or so in theater alone. The bummer thing the bean counters did was remove all the pain relievers about a year ago.

We use the Cintas kits in the fabrication shop I work in Indiana and I have one 3 feet from my bench. What is noticeably missing from the kit posted are the disposable splinter picks, use those every day along with the band aids or fabric wound covers if you will.

I speak from some experience having spend 31 years working for local government and doing the budgets.
Some business that is likely connected to a state legislator probably has the contract to provide those kits.
Lots of places in Cali you have to pay for a grocery bag and can't have a plastic straw, but you can get free needles to shoot up your illegal drugs.
And in our county, The County is buying 3 house over $1 million each to let squatters on a local trail live for free. Plus another $9 million for free tiny tiny houses with free electric, shuttles, tec., right across the road from a Senior Community of 27,000 people. No one in that community will own a bicycle any more but there will be 4 times as many bikes as people across the road.
And soon with the additional proposed sales tax increases it will cost us 10% for the privilege of spending our money that we work for!
Baxter Out!

I can understand such a warning. I mean, after all, who wouldn't be tempted to lick their balls?
Reminds me of the punch line, "Go ahead, he looks like a friendly dog!"

Uhh, no. Like the others have said it’s common for first aid kits to be supplied. It’s just like having water delivered. One guy finally gets off the farm and sees a first aid kit, thinks it’s only a California thing and all of the sudden it’s some massive government conspiracy to make you buy bandages. Some of y’alls foil is too tight.

It’s pretty specific. One guy goes to Silicon Valley and sees a first aid kit and assumes that “every tech company is given one“. When it’s normal. All over the country. It’s a first aid kit. At work no less. And it’s not free nor is it from the state. Then someone else pops in and says it’s some sort of legislator kickback scheme. A couple of guys have taken a common workplace kit and spun it into some talk radio conspiracy. Heaven forbid we’re able to get basic first aid at work. What’s next? Surprise that the little red tubes on the wall are used to put out fires?

If I walked into the workplace and saw this cabinet, I would be surprised too and ask "Does every place have one like this?" Personally, I have never seen a first aid "kit" aka cabinet of this size. I'm used to seeing what used to be a common size first aid kit a bit bigger than a lunch box and easily transported from one place to another in an emergency. If this is the new normal, then good for those employees who may some day need it.

@Woodchuck comes thru again! I was wondering how long it would take for someone to take the bait.

Also, I'm an eye surgeon and I perform some surgeries in my office.......I don't have a first aid kit like that. It is a bit much.

The CA cancer warning has become so ubiquitous that it has become meaningless.

To government (politicians) if a little is good, a lot must be better, without regard to cost ... this applies to schooling (everyone should go to college, I mean grad school, I mean…), housing (everyone should own a house), transportation (we need a faster train), etc.

Even though I’m no fan of government, I agree with the general OSHA type regulations which includes emergency medical supplies and heart defibrillators.

If you take a moment and think about the following, it’s funny and scary at the same time.

There are all sorts of “required training” to transport and handle hazardous materials as well as follow up training.
Not to mention various fees required on top of it.

Yet....any moron can pump gasoline without a respirator or safety gear on.

Just food for thought.🤔
