what should be in a first aid kit

New British Standard Workplace First Aid Kits

this year the government released the new British standard workplace first aid kits. They are very similar to the previous HSE workplace first aid but do have some important additions. If you have an existing HSE first aid kit  there is no reason to throw it away you can simply  purchase the additional items to top it up so it meets the new British standard requirements.
