Workplace First Aid Kits
A first aid kit is an essential requirement for any business. At Workplace Equipment Store we have a comprehensive range of British Standard Compliant first aid kits and first aid points to suit the needs of all workplaces, whatever the number of employees or level of risk. Our first aid kits come in compact hard cases ensuring they are portable and easily recognisable. Each of the kits contents can be refilled offering great value for money.
NEW STANDARD BS8599-1:2019: The British Standard applying to workplace first aid kits, is changing
The existing version, BS 8599-1:2011, has now been withdrawn and replaced by BS 8599-1:2019. Some of these changes are minor, but others are more substantial. In brief, this is what has changed:
- Two new kit categories have been added to BS8599-1: Personal issue kits and critical injury packs
- The British Standard travel kit has been altered so it now matches the medium vehicle kit (as per BS8599-2) and has been renamed to ‘travel and motoring kit‘.
- Minor changes to the quantities of certain components in small, medium and large workplace first aid kits
While manufacturers have been offered a year to switch their products over to the new standard, our suppliers are already working to update our British Standards product range in line with these changes, so you can be sure that any of our products marked as British Standard compliant will still be so.
