BS8599-1 First Aid Kits

Until the British Standard Institute introduced the BS8599-1 standard, in an emergency businesses could find their kits lack the essentials needed or included out of date or waste components. Often kits don’t contain enough wipes, plasters or sacks in which to dispose of dressings, so employers may have to buy additional supplies to supplement their kit.

The standard recommends the correct number of supplies for small, medium and large kits and also recommends how many kits are needed depending on the size of the organisation and their level of risk.

What size is required?

Employers are required to undertake a risk assessment to decide the hazard and how many employees are involved in the area.

Workplace Category Number of employees First aid kit size required
Low hazard:
Shops, offices, libraries etc.
Less than 25 Small kit
25-100 Medium kit
More than 100 1 large kit per 100 employees
High hazard:
Light engineering and assembly work, food processing, warehousing etc.
Less than 5 Small kit
5-25 Medium kit
More than 25 1 large kit per 25 employees

Here at Eureka! we are happy to offer BS8599-1 First Aid Kits in a variety of cases to meet your needs.

HSE First Aid Kits

The HSE recommends that employers carry out a first aid needs assessment, to ascertain the level of provision needed. The minimum requirement is a suitably stocked first aid kit; your assessment may indicate extra materials and equipment is required such as scissors or extra wipes.

Here at Eureka! we have taken the trouble out of sorting your first aid kits, by supplying HSE first aid kits which comply with the HSE minimum guidelines. This will ensure that you have a kit to hand which can be used for minor injuries and day to day first aid.
