First Aid Kits

Be prepared for emergencies by having a well-stocked first aid kit.

These can be kept in the car, in the home or at the workplace. First aid kits can contain different contents, depending on your specific requirements and situation.

Some of the contents of a first aid kit could include:

  • Gauze swabs - for cleaning wounds
  • Disposable gloves - prevent infection
  • Adhesive Strips (bandaids) - for minor wounds
  • Triangular bandages - for slings, used as a pad
  • Roller bandages - for bleeding control
  • Gauze swabs - for cleaning wounds
  • Disposable gloves - for infection control
  • Bandaids - for minor wounds
  • Scissors - for cutting materials
  • Safety pins - used to keep slings in place
  • Note pad and pencil - for recording information
  • Sterile eye wash solution - for irrigating eyes
  • Sterile eye pads - for wounds to the eyes
  • CPR barrier device - for preventing communicable diseases

Make sure that all of your family members and staff know where the first aid kit is located so that access to the kit in an emergency is as quick as possible. 

 

What should you do?

We all respond to emergencies in different ways.

Whether trained or untrained, some of us are afraid we will do the wrong thing and make the situation worse.

If you are unsure about what to do, call for an ambulance.

The worst thing to do is to do nothing.
