By law, First Aid Kits are required to be placed in your place of business. Additional safety products and supplies may be needed depending on the type of business and the potential risk factors within your establishment. It is also critical that a first aid kit is available in your home and auto as potential risks like car accidents; unforeseen medical conditions or workplace injuries are inevitable but treatable until emergency medical staff arrives on the scene.
A first Aid kit is there to ensure that you have everything to provide the best chance for the patient to remain stable until the proper medical personnel arrives. First aid kits should contain a schedule for treatment of specific conditions that do not require medical attention such as minor scrapes, cuts, bruises or burns. If you are going to plan for natural disasters, emergencies, or major trauma, we carry all the first aid equipment and supplies you will need. Along with our basic first aid kits for the home or workplace we also carry disaster relief kits that provide food, water, flashlights, blankets, a first aid kit and more in case of natural disasters such as tornadoes, floods or earthquakes. Our trauma kits contains more advanced materials for more critical injuries sustained during an accident such as stethoscopes, blood pressure equipment, burn treatments, eye safety equipment, CPR/AED supplies and much more.
We carry many different types of first aid kits that are all compliant with OSHA and ANSI standards and requirements. To determine which first aid kit, safety products and additional equipment or supplies you may need, the first thing you need to do is conduct a risk assessment of the hazards and fire risks you have on your property or within your place of business. You may determine that a single first aid kit will be sufficient in an office atmosphere where as in an industrial type workplace it is plausible to keep a full line of first aid products and critical equipment to aid in case of major injuries because of the more advanced risk factors such as heavy lifting, machinery and moving parts. After your risk assessment you will establish what level of first aid products you will need to have.
Establish a highly visible and easily accessible place for your first aid kit and supplies. You also want to appoint a person to take charge of first aid arrangements and stock. Arrange a meeting between staff and employees to communicate the importance, reasons and how to use all supplies and equipment included in your business' first aid kit purchased from 1staidsupplies.com. These same steps need to be taken for your home, assess the risk factors, elect the appropriate level of a potential risk and make sure you have all the appropriate supplies. Your family should be educated on what to do in the case of an emergency and should know how to utilize every product included in your first aid kit when in need of or administering emergency care.
