AB 70 – Requires Emergency Response Trauma Kits In Buildings Constructed Before 2023 If Modified
Health and Safety Code Section 19310 requires the person or entity, responsible for managing certain buildings constructed on or after January 1, 2023 and classified as assembly buildings, business buildings, educational buildings and residential buildings, as defined in the California Building Code, to comply with certain requirements related to compliant kits. These compliance requirements related to trauma kits include acquiring and placing at least six trauma kits on the premises, as specified, inspecting the trauma kits, restocking the trauma kits and providing the tenants of the building or structure information for training in the use of the trauma kits.
Assembly Bill 70 (AB 70) extends the trauma kit requirements to structures that are constructed prior to January 1, 2023, and subject to subsequent modifications, renovations, or tenant improvements. A structure is considered to be modified, renovated, or tenant improved if the structure is subject to any of the following on or after January 1, 2024: one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) of tenant improvements in one calendar year; one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) of building renovations in one calendar year; or any tenant improvement for places of assembly, including auditoriums and performing arts theaters.
(AB 70 amends Section 19310 of the Health and Safety Code.)
