The Evolution Series is the market leader in first aid kit design and content, developed specifically for the UK. The first aid kit comes in three sizes (small, medium and large) according to your organisation’s needs while helping you to comply with British Standard requirements for workplace first aid.

These high quality first aid kit cases are made of a durable injection moulded plastic and feature a white cross and clear "First Aid" sign, making it easy to identify. The first aid kit is ideal for any type of workplace providing all essential workplace first aid supplies in case of an emergency. The contents are stored in an innovative rigid plastic case that is easy to carry, making it simple to transport to any casualty in need of attention.

British Standard Compliant First Aid Kits Complying with BS 8599-1, Workplace First Aid Kits

In recognising the need to ensure that current workplace first aid provision is adequate and appropriate The British Healthcare Trade Association worked with the British Standards Institute (BSI), to create a British Standard for first aid kits in the workplace.

These enhanced kits are referred to by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in their latest First Aid at Work - Guidance on Regulations. The HSE states that 'Employees may wish to refer to Britsh Standard BS 8599 which provides further information on the contents of Workplace First Aid Kits'. The contents of these kits take into account more modern and functional products encompassing a wider range of common workplace risks and are therefore more comprehensive than the previous HSE compliant kits.

BS 8599-1 is the standard that sets the new minimum level that workplace first aid kits should conform to.

The BS 8599-1 standards give recommendations on the amount and size of the first aid kits necessary for the different workplace environments based on the category of risk and number of employees in the workplace.

Should the risk or numbers of employees deem it necessary the minimum contents as set out in the standard can be supplemented by additional items appropriate to the hazards identified by the risk assessment. This may result for example in increasing the number of burn dressings where a significant risk of a burn injury is likely.

What size first aid kit do I need?

The size of the kit required is dependent on a combination of the level of risk and the number of employees in the workplace.

The table below provides guidance for employees but does not replace the requirement to carry out a risk assessment.

This table is for guidance only and each workplace needs to evaluate its own level of risk.

Category of Hazard Table

Special circumstances also need to be considered such as remoteness from medical services, special hazards such as the use of hydrofluoric acid and sites with several buildings. In these situations there may need to be more first aid kits than set out in the table.

Brilliant price, well made durable grippy gloves. I use these for keeping my hands warm when doing yard duties at the stables.

Comfortable soft and warm, the light weight of the head light is barely noticeable and will do an excellent job of being seen on dark evenings. The hat may be too big if you have a very small head, but I would highly recommend.
