BSI First Aid Kits

The British Standards Institute (BSI)

As a world renown standards authority the BSI have developed a full set of first aid kit recommendations that build upon the requirements of The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The British Standard BS 8599-1 specification for the contents of workplace first aid kits recommends appropriate equipment and consumables for addressing injury risks across a range of environments.

To comply with these regulations and standards we offer a great choice of kits that are carefully designed to meet the HSE or BS recommendations. 

British Standard BS8599-1 first aid kits

BSI kits feature additional and more comprehensive contents to those minimum requirements set out in the L74 Guidance on Regulations. These kits are developed with further items intended to address a wider range of the more common workplace risks.

The BS8599-1 standards establish enhanced minimum first aid kit recommendations that take account of the varying provision levels suitable for the risk category and the number of workers in the assessed workplace.

What size of kit do I need?

In assessing the most appropriate size of kit, consideration should be given to both the level of risk and the number of employees in the workplace. The following table will provide general guidance, whilst actual requirements should be based upon a workplace specific risk assessment.

 

 LOW HAZARDS (eg shops, offices, libraries):

Less than 25 = At Least One Small Kit

25 - 100 = At Least One Medium Kit

More Than 100 = One Large Kit per 100 Employees

 

HIGH HAZARD (eg engineering, food processing, warehouse, construction, dangerous machinery):

Less than 5 = At Least One Small Kit

5 - 25 = At Least One Medium Kit

More Than 25 = One Large kit per 25 Employees
