How do I know what first aid kit I should buy for my workplace?

There are lots of things to consider when deciding which first aid kit is suitable for you - including the size of the workplace, number of employees, risk level and work activity.

There are 2 steps you should take when deciding which first aid kit is suitable for your workplace:


Each employer must carry out a workplace assessment whereby they assess the environment, equipment, facilities, and relevant personnel.

When doing this you need to consider how many significant areas there are in the workplace. A significant area is an individual floor or building e.g. an office and a warehouse on the same site constitutes as 2 significant areas. There needs to be one first aid kit per significant area.

Employers must also consider employee health records, travel, secondary sites and visitors.

You can use our selection chart below to narrow down which workplace first aid kit is suitable for you:

Degree of hazardNumber of employeesMinimum requirements
Low hazard (e.g. shops, offices, and all sports facilities)Less than 25At least 1 small kit
25 - 50At least 1 medium kit
More than 50At least 1 large kit per 100 employees
High hazard (e.g. light engineering and assembly work, food processing, warehousing, dangerous machinery construction, harmful chemicals etc.)Less than 5At least 1 small kit
5 - 25At least 1 medium kit
More than 25At least 1 large kit per 25 employees

Once you know which size kit you need, you need to know which type of kit is suitable for your workforce. Our first aid kits have been developed to meet British Standards and consider all the different hazards and employee needs.

What are the legal first aid kit requirements?

All workplaces (no exceptions) are required to provide British Standard quality first aid equipment in the workplace.

As the 1981 Health and Safety Regulations state – every employer is required to complete a full assessment of the workplace and fit first aid kits accordingly. The assessment should be thorough and consider the factors previously mentioned to determine how many first aid kits will be necessary.

Below are the minimum requirements for first aid kits in the UK:


It is the law

Employers have a legal responsibility to provide immediate first-aid care to their employees and support them with work-health related issues.


The 60 second rule

As injuries at work can be life-threatening you should be able to reach a kit within 60 seconds.


One kit per floor

If your staff are split over more than one floor, you must have at least one kit per floor.

What should a first aid kit contain?

Every workplace and environment has its own requirements for the size and contents of a first aid kit, which is determined by the workplace assessment.

As each case is different, there is not a defined list of items that a first aid kit must include, but at a minimum, it should be stocked with the following items from our first aid kit checklist:

  • Wound dressings
  • Bandages
  • Tape
  • Assorted plasters
  • First aid emergency guidance leaflet
  • Sterile eye dressings
  • Burn dressings

Our first aid kits contain these items, which are also available to buy individually throughout the first aid section on our website.
