First Aid Kits for the Workplace, Schools & Leisure Time
Every place of work needs a first aid kit as part of its pre-required emergency equipment. Such a kit will include various dressing materials and other items (scissors, wraps, plaster dispensers or procedure brochures) that would be needed for first aid. The equipment in the first aid kit is oriented on the type of service and the number of employees. However, DIN 13169 calls for a specific, pre-requisite size of dressing kit, as written in the law. The first aid kit is therefore suited for use in schools, kindergartens or for leisure activities.
Importance of Quick Access to the First Aid Kit
It is extremely important that a first aid kit be stored in such a place, which allows each employee unhindered access to it. Therefore, many first aid kits are delivered with a compatible wall bracket. In order to make dressing kits visible over a long distance, they are typically found in signal colours, such as yellow or orange. The typical symbol (white cross on a green background) should either be printed on the case or placed above the kit as an indicator.
Expired Items in a First Aid Kit should be Consistently Replaced
The articles that fill a first aid kit will usually have an expiration date. This date denotes that the dressing sterility or functionality (e.g. adhesiveness of wound plasters) can only be guaranteed until this day. Once the expiry date has been reached, it is important to dispose of the products and replace them. For this purpose, one can find complete refill sets and fill assortments for first aid kits, which meet all legal prescribed requirements. As an alternative to a first aid kit, a dressing kit can also be used so long as the contents meet the legal requirements. The advantage of a dressing kit lies in the compact dimensions, but the disadvantage is the fact that the required products are not as easily accessible as with a first aid kit.
