British Standards First Aid Kits

The recent message below shows helpful information for businesses in the UK unsure as to what size first aid kit they require and what the contents should be.

British Standard Compliant First Aid Kits

In recognising the need to ensure that workplace first aid provision is adequate and appropriate The British Healthcare Trade Association has been working with the British Standards Institute (BSI), to create a new British standard for first aid kits in the workplace.

These enhanced kits are based upon the minimum requirements set out by the Health & Safety Executive in their approved code of practice. The contents of the kits take into account more modern and functional products encompassing a wider range of common workplace risks and are therefore more comprehensive than the current HSE kits.

The new British Standard kits will therefore represent best practice in workplace first aid provision whilst still being compliant with HSE guidelines.

What size kit do I need?

The size of the kit required is dependent on a combination of the level of risk and the number of employees in the workplace. The table below provides guidance for employers but does not replace the requirement to carry out a risk assessment.

 Category Of Risk Number of Employees Number & Size of First Aid Kit 
Low Risk- e.g Shops, Offices, Libraries Less than 25 1 small kit
25-100 1 medium kit
More than 100 1 large kit per 100 employees
High Risk- e.g Light engineering, Food processing, Warehousing, Construction, Slaughter housing, Working with chemicals Fewer than 5 1 small kit
5-25 1 medium kit
More than 25 1 large kit per 25 employees
