When you think health and safety, the first thing that comes to mind is a first aid kit. They have become an essential piece of equipment to have in all public places to ensure that any minor injuries are treated effectively.
Our first class first aid kits are provided and constructed by Wallace Cameron International who have been perfecting the first aid kit for over 50 years north of the border in Scotland.
Their first aid kits are both essential for minor injuries whilst also providing effective help for major injuries whilst you’re waiting for the emergency services to arrive.
What makes a good first aid kit
A good first aid kit encompasses having everything to hand that would be required to deal with minor injuries whilst also making sure all products in the kit are in date and ready to work effectively.
Examples of what makes a good first aid kit include multiple sizes of dressings for different sized wounds, various sizes of plasters, multiple pairs of gloves, safety pins, scissors, eye patches, alcohol free wipes and an accident report book.
Depending on the environment in which the first aid kit is going to located you may also need some specialist equipment added to your kit or have a specialist kit entirely. For example a burns first aid kit is likely to be found in a factory and food hygiene first aid kit in a restaurant.
