Employers are required to ensure that there are “adequate & appropriate” Health & Safety facilities in the workplace. The Health & Safety Executive offer only guidance as to what is sufficient to meet the above statement. In response to this issue, British Standard First Aid Kits were developed in 2012. Whilst it is not a legal requirement to purchase these kits for your workplace, the design of the kits means that it is far simpler to select the correct size for your needs.
Some workplaces can have differing levels of risk- factory & office workers on the same site, for example- These need to be treated as different categories of risk and the appropriate kits purchased accordingly. Also, provision needs to be made for the off site/lone worker and each of the BSi Compliant travel kits are suitable for one member of staff.
