For all businesses in the UK, even individuals that are self-employed, responsibility for making “adequate provision” does not end at the office or factory exit. Employees who are mobile, working away from base or for any other reason are engaged in company business while out and about, must be included when making first aid provisions. These kits all share identical content, but are offered in different styles of container to suit individual needs. Each kit contains the basic essentials that should be “readily available” to employees who are tasked with working in any situation away from base. Particularly appropriate for use in HGV’s, vans, trucks and regular cars in commercial use.
