Workplace First Aid Kits
We offer three different sized kits and the kit that you need will depend on how many people you have in the property and the level of risk.
Our kits are supplied in high quality cases that are strong and durable ensuring the first aid equipment is protected.
The new BS8599-1 compliant first aid kits are now the only safe and clear way for an employer to meet their obligations.
Every work place should now have a first aid kit that is compliant to BS8599-1 and depending on their size and risk will decide on the size kit they require:
The small first aid kit can provide medical aid for up to 25 people in low hazard premises and up to 5 people in high hazard premises. The medium first aid kit supports between 25-100 people in low hazard premises and only between 5-25 people in high hazard premises. The large first aid kit can aid 100+ people in low hazard and up to 25 people in high hazard premises.
What size first aid kit do we require?
Employers are required to undertake a risk assessment to decide what the hazard levels are, and how many employees are involved in the area to be covered by each first aid kit.
Below is a useful guide to match the risk assessment to an appropriate size kit:
E.G: Shops, offices, Libraries Etc.
