HSE first aid kits contain the minimum required content for the workplace. They are available in three standard sizes, 1-10 persons, 11-20 persons and 21-50 persons. This kit is for 10 persons, and ideal for small businesses and home use.
Employers should conduct a risk assessment of their workplace to determine whether to add extra first aid contents to the standard HSE box, and should always check and replenish first aid boxes to ensure in the event of an emergency, sufficient first aid contents are readily available.
For mixed sites (office and factory floor) a risk assessment should be carried out for both environments prior to purchasing and putting together any first aid box as the risks, hazards and requirements may differ enough to warrant different box contents for each.
The HSE workplace first aid kits provide a good starting point for providing the minimum content required. If the risk assessment of your workplace highlights specific risks that require additional first aid content, you can add to and customise your box contents to suit your own purposes.
