First Aid Boxes Content Update
The minimum requirements for a first aid box have recently been updated in line with BS8599‐1.
The main changes are the addition of the following items to be included in the first aid box :
· Sterile Finger Dressings
· Foil Blanket (Emergency)
· Burn Dressing and/or Cooling Gel
· First Aid Shears (capable of cutting though clothing)
· Conforming Bandage
Note:- A conforming bandage is a bandage designed to mould itself to the shape of the area where it is applied. This helps the bandage stay in place, providing extra security.
