When considering workplace safety, first aid kits are one of the first things that come to mind. By law, every workplace requires first aid.
Our first aid kits cover a wide range of reactive incidents, including Burns, Biohazard, Haemorrhage & Critical Injury First Aid Kits, and Eyewash Kits for the workplace and vehicles.
HSE vs BS8599-1:2019
Does your First Aid Kit has the BS stamp of approval? British Standard (BS) regulations for first aid are the only recognised standard in the UK.
For Ireland, please use HSA approved kits.
Replacing Existing Kits
Check your first aid kits regularly as some items can expire. If items have passed their expiry date, then they may be ineffective and unsafe and should be disposed of as soon as possible. Always check the manufacturer expiry date.
