Bandages, sterile pads, burn cream and more can come in handy at home, at the office or on trips, so having a first aid kit around is always a great way to stay prepared. First aid kits allow for quick treatment of injuries and can help keep injuries from worsening before bringing them to the attention of medical professionals. Find supplies and accessories in our first aid safety selection to maximize the effectiveness of a first aid kit.
First aid kits come in compact, portable packs that can be stowed in a backpack for safe keeping or carried directly to the site of an emergency. Keep a first aid kit in your pack when going on a hiking trip, keep it in a cupboard in the breakroom at work or store it in a bathroom cabinet at home.
Due to the variety of elements included in a first aid kit, from bandages and hand sanitizer to alcohol pads and antiseptic, they can cover various needs over a long period of time. Many first aid kits specify a certain number of people they are designed for, allowing you to pick out a first aid kit that suits the home or work environment it will be accommodating.
Check each first aid kit to see if it meets standards like ANSI and OSHA. These kits have been designed to fulfill expectations set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Association, the American National Standards Institute and other organizations to ensure they provide proper care.
