Keeping your employees and customers safe often means having quality first aid equipment on hand for those just in case. There are many suppliers in our network who stock a large variety of first aid and safety supplies, from bandages right through to complete first aid kits. Some of the most popular first aid and safety products are described below.
First aid kits
First aid kits are a must have! For small businesses you don’t necessarily need the biggest and most stocked kit, and some of the smaller basic first aid kits will suffice. The smaller first aid kits are also fantastic for company vehicles, or for businesses who have multiple locations, keeping a small one in each location, just in case they are ever needed.
Larger businesses will be attracted to the larger, comprehensive kits that some of our suppliers stock, which will suit them best due to their larger employee size and greater options and inclusions.
Cuts and scrapes are often unavoidable. Having a variety of band aids and bandages in various sizes, styles and materials can ensure that you are ready to patch up any mishaps that may happen. Our suppliers stock a range of bandages from plastic band aids right through to waterproof dressings.
PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and refers to equipment that is worn to reduce or minimise exposure to any hazardous materials or environments. The intention of PPE is to minimise injury or illness, which could occur through exposure to chemicals and other workplace hazards. The most frequently purchased PPE equipment includes, safety glasses and shoes, face masks, respirators, hard hats, vests and coveralls.
Spill kits as the name implies are used in the event that there is some sort of spill within the workplace. A typical spill kit will include equipment to assist with clean-up such as cloths, paper towel and a mop, as well as disinfectant, spray bottle and a first aid kit to trat any injuries. Another common feature of a spill kit is warning signage to ensure nobody is injured whilst the clean-up is in place.
Industrial absorbents are used to clean up chemical spills and include things like pads, rollers, and wipes to ensure that all chemical residues can be removed from the surface where the spill has occurred.
Dangerous Goods Cabinets
Dangerous goods cabinets store harsh and abrasive chemicals to ensure they are not accidently misused or accessed at times when they should not be. These cabinets include locks and keys or access codes to ensure only authorised personnel have access.
To reduce the risk of contamination, safety showers are essential for some businesses and can often be hard to source. These portable shower units enable employees to wash down, removing any residue transfer from their bodies, and are an extremely useful item.
