|What should you have in your office First Aid kit?|
The majority of small business First aid kits that I have seen look like
they were used as a target in the Gulf War.
It is usually rusted and has
a puddle of eyewash on the bottom tray. When
you get a bandage out of the kit, besides the fact that the thing you wanted is
wet, you can only find the wrapper for the bandage. This is because the last person who wanted that bandage used
the bandage and threw the wrapper back inside because the trash can directly
underneath the kit was to far to reach.
Does this scenario sound familiar? To
solve this problem I have created a list of first aid kit contents for a company
with 25 people. I would suggest
that one person in the company be designated as to fill the kit every month.
This immediately will make for better first aid practices as well as a
potential reduction in liability. All
kits should be assembled in a clean cabinet, case, or a bag.
