It is mandatory that every workplace has compliant first aid kits on site, no matter how large or small, or how high or low the risk of injuries is. We're going to cover our top products for different workplace types / industries so you know that you're compliant for first aid.

Considerations before you choose your first aid

There's a few factors you also need to take into consideration when choosing your first aid kit and supply's:

  • Additional risks (outdoors, eye injury, burns, remote locations and food handling)
  • Number of employees
  • Size of the workplace (multiple levels / buildings)

Each of the above could effect your first aid requirements. You may need multiple kits, or additional equipment like a first aid room or defibrillator etc. We have a complete workplace guide here for you to download for more info on the above considerations.
