First Aid Boxes

New British Standard for First Aid Kits

A new standard (BS 8599) for first aid kits was introduced by the British standards institute on 30 June 2011.

It should be noted however that this standard is not a requirement of the Safety (first Aid) Regulations 1981 and that the contents of your first aid box should be based on a risk assessment and reflect the level of hazard within your organisation.
