Most of us do not think about the importance of having effective first aid supplies until some medical emergency happens. Indeed, it is not usually until after an unpleasant medical incident or ‘near miss’ has occurred that we realise just how vital a well-stocked first aid kit can be.
Obviously, accidents can occur anywhere and everywhere. Regardless of whether they are minor scrapes, serious bone breaks or medical emergencies; the need for first aid provision is significant and vital. Therefore, it is essential that people keep first aid kits in areas where they are likely to spend significant amounts of time.
Naturally, if you have a first aid kit in your home, in your car or at your place of work, it is very important that you keep it stocked with items that are relevant to your environment. Everyday essentials like bandages and antiseptic wipes are integral features of any first aid box as they enable wounds to be quickly cleaned and dressed. Similarly, cold and hot compressor packs are also a valuable addition as they can provide casualties with immediate pain relief. However, even though associated items like high-visibility vests may well come in handy in a car or workplace first aid kit; they are not so necessary in a home kit so there is little point in having them take up valuable space.
