A first aid kit is a collection of medical supplies and equipment used to provide initial medical treatment. First aid kits are particularly useful for treating minor injuries such as cuts and scrapes, as well as providing critical support in life-threatening situations before emergency services arrive.

To ensure easy use, it is recommended to keep first aid kits organised with separate compartments for different supplies and equipment. This makes it easy for users to quickly access the necessary equipment in times of emergency. Additionally, it is important to consider the location of the kit and to ensure that it is clearly visible and easily accessible to everyone.

Having a first aid kit in the workplace is essential to comply with the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. These regulations mandate that employers provide adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities, and personnel to ensure employees receive immediate attention if they’re injured or taken ill at work. These regulations apply to all workplaces, including those with fewer than five employees and self-employed individuals.
