A fully stocked and up to date first aid kit is an essential part of any work or meeting place. The HSC Approved Code of Practice March 1997 states: "The contents of first aid containers should be examined frequently and should be restocked as soon as possible after use. Sufficient supplies should be held in a backup stock on site. Care should be taken to discard items safely after the expiry date has passed."
At The Safety Supply Company we stock a full range of First Aid kits and supplies. These include HSE approved kits, specialised environment kits such as food hygiene or vehicle kits, eyewash stations and kit refills. In assessing the need for a first aid kit one should consider the size of the organisation, history of accidents, nature of workforce, remoteness of your premises from emergency medical services and the needs of lone, travelling or remote workers.
