BS8599-1 Sterochef Catering First Aid Kit
A catering first aid kit made by first aid specialists to British Standard BS8599-1 to protect kitchen staff and comply with Health and safety at work requirements.
Protect your team in the high-risk kitchen environment with a commercial kitchen first aid kit.
Kitchen and catering environments are filled with hazards. Heat, flames, steam, sharp blades, cleaning chemicals, heavy lifting, and busy environments all contribute to your workforce's daily risks—even if they follow safety procedures.
Giving staff access to first aid supplies means they have the necessary tools to handle injuries and accidents. You’re also required to install first aid kits by law. Failing to do so could lead to a fine or even prosecution so make sure you do the right thing as a responsible business owner.
You can provide optimum protection with a specially designed food service first aid kit that offers even better equipment than a standard workplace first aid kit for catering industry injuries like burns and cuts from sharp blades. Our first aid kit for kitchens is also designed with the signature blue to make it easy to identify when searching for first aid supplies.
Although this is a catering first aid kit, it still complies with BS8599-1 to ensure that your business offers all the first aid items needed in any workplace.
The UK Law on Kitchen First Aid Kits
All businesses must provide access to adequate first aid supplies on their premises by law in the UK. While there’s no legally-binding list of items to include in your first aid kit, British Standards, the notified body for quality and safety in the UK, determines a definitive set of requirements that act as the minimum recommendation. We design and manufacture all our BS8599 catering first aid kits to these requirements.
Your risk assessment will determine exactly what hazards you must mitigate with first aid provision. Usually, in kitchens, you find hazards like burns, cuts, collisions, falls, and eye and chemical hazards. Contact us if you need help with your risk assessment.
UK law requires that food processors and anyone handling food use blue dressings. Sterochef blue, electromagnetically detectable dressings are coated with a medical-grade, high-tack adhesive, making them the most reliable brand on the market for easy detection and prevention of food contamination.
Where kitchen first aid kits are required, we often recommend burncare kit and an eyecare kit for complete protection against hazards in the food industry. Find out about the types of injuries you’re at risk of and how to handle them in our blog:
