What should you keep in your First Aid Kit?

We often get asked what services must include in their first aid kits. The education and care regulations are not specific. They just say the kits must be suitably equipped but don’t prescribe what they should contain. This is because the first aid needs of each service are likely to differ. 

You could work out what to put in the kit yourself, but it’s best practice and common sense to consult a reputable Guide like Safe Work Australia’s Model Code of Practice- First Aid in the Workplace. It has an example of a First Aid Kit suitable for most workplaces at Appendix C. Whatever Guide you use, the next step is to decide whether you need additional items or whether some items are unnecessary for your service. It’s also advisable to check your incident, illness, trauma and illness records to ensure your first aid kit contains items that have been required in the past.

How do you decide what your First Aid Kits should contain?
