Staying prepared for accidental cuts, scrapes and other injuries is important. That's why first aid kits include items like bandages, antiseptic wipes, gauze pads and first aid tape for treatment of injuries and other ailments. Look for a travel kit if you're on the go, or choose a wall-mount occupational kit if you need a first aid kit for your workplace.
While most first aid kits include bandages and gauze pads, some kits feature more specialized products. If your first aid needs are simple, choose a kit that contains the basics, like bandages, gauze and burn cream, or choose a more diverse kit with extras like over-the-counter pain relief medicine, shears and latex or vinyl gloves.
Are you a frequent traveler? Consider stocking travel first aid supplies, which often feature compact yet sturdy packaging for on-the-go durability and a small variety of essentials, including bandages, antiseptic pads and gauze, to cover basic, small injuries.
If you work in construction, in a warehouse or in other occupational and industrial applications, consider choosing an industrial kit that includes items that address specific needs at your workplace, such as burn cream for accidental burns, disposable bags for biohazards and face masks for chemical exposure.
