A basic first aid kit can be used to help reduce blood loss, infection, and future medical complications. Having a first aid kit on hand allows you to immediately treat injuries so the body can begin to heal. Everyone, including families, workers, teachers, campers, boaters, hikers, and travelers should keep a first-aid-kit close by to treat basic cuts, scrapes, burns, and other minor injuries.
What type of first aid kit do I need?
When choosing which first aid kit is right for you, you first need to determine when and where it will be used and if there are environmental factors that should be considered. For example, a boating first aid kit should be waterproof but a home first aid kit can be a nylon bag or compact box. If you need a first aid kit for a business, it’s important to select a kit that will be easily accessible for employees.
When determining the right first aid kit for your use, consider how many people the first aid kit needs to treat and the possible injuries that are likely to occur. Select the kit with the appropriate first aid supplies to treat that number of people and injuries.
What essential items should I keep in my first aid kit?
Every basic first aid kit should include the essential first aid supplies used to treat minor injuries including cuts, scrapes and burns. Depending on your use, you may want to include additional items that will treat possible injuries for your specific use including eye wash, cold packs, splints, CPR masks, gauze and medicines.

What is a first aid kit
What is a first aid kit
A first aid kit is a box, bag or pack that holds supplies used to treat minor injuries including cuts, scrapes, burns, bruises and sprains. More elaborate first aid kits can also include survival supplies, life-saving emergency supplies or convenience items like bug sting wipes or cold & flu medicines.
Why are there so many different types of first aid kits?
First aid kits are used in many different places and may require special items not normally included in a home first aid kit. Workplace kits have a specific list of items that are required by law. Sports kits usually have more items for bruises and sprains. The container will also be customized to the application. For example, a construction first aid kit and a swimming pool kit are required to be in a waterproof metal box while a travel kit can simply go in a ziploc type bag. Many different types of first aid kits are required because of the different uses.
How do I select the right first aid kit for my needs?
Knowing the types of injuries that are likely to occur will help you select the right first aid kit for you. Many first aid kit manufacturers will put them in a category that easily identifies the type of injuries it is designed to support. Other attributes including: waterproof, number of people, container type and more will help narrow your search for the right first aid kit for your needs.
How do I refill or restock my supplies?
Regular inspections of your existing first aid kit should occur based on your usage. At a minimum, supplies should be checked every 6 months. For home users, consider checking on Memorial Day and Labor Day. For workplace users, monthly inspections should be considered.
When checking supplies, always check these 4 things:
Expiration dates (throw away if expired)
Damaged items (throw away)
Partially used items (don’t share)
Adequate stock levels (ensure supplies will last until next check)
