All businesses require a safety protocol in position. The first step in abiding by the OSHA/ANSI/HSE compliance is to have a suitable first aid kit on hand. It is also very important that you possess a first aider the leader on all shifts for virtually any medical concerns. The person the leader should have medical training, basic medical anyway. There should be literature intended for all employees in the case an issue arises and a record with the content from the medical kits.
Different businesses have different needs however it is critical that all employers and workers are aware of the HSE guidelines that connect with their place of work.
Here we’re going to discuss a couple of forms of first-aid kits that you’re going to want to have accessible determined by your working environment requirements. The three main types are Catering Kits, Standard/Vehicle First Aid kit, and Biohazard Kits.
Catering High risk first aid kit
Catering kits are prepared for the meal and hospitality business. They have specific things that are designed for cuts and burns that may arise. Blue plasters and burn items are essential in these environments.
Standard First Aid Kits / Vehicle Kits
The second form of first aid kit that we’re going to discuss is the Standard First Aid Kit; they’re similar in nature to kits that a majority of people retain in their households. The Standard First Aid Kit has all you need in cases where of a tiny injury. They contain circumstances to deal with small cuts and grazes. Standard First Aid Kits are often larger but similar in content for the Vehicle type kits
Bio-Hazard Medical Kits
Again according to work, don’t assume all will require a Bio-Hazard kit. Larger factories, hospitals, and also other emergency services rely on them. They allow the safe handling of waste and infected materials in case there is infections such as SARS, Avian Flu, and many recently Swine Flu (H1N1). Older diseases like Hepatitis, Aids and TB are still also a large concern. We also should be watchful about Environmental toxins, spills and also other hazardous situations.
