Are you the first aider in the workplace? If someone got injured right now - would you have a first aid kit to hand?
We hear stories all the time about people getting injured, only to discover they didn’t have, or couldn’t find a first aid kit. Or rushing to the first aid kit, only to find it was half empty!
At Steroplast we want to make you aware of the importance of being prepared!
The consequences of not being able to help a colleague, friend or loved one who is seriously injured, simply because you didn’t have a first aid kit, just doesn’t bare thinking about.
We have a couple of leaflets that make essential reading: First Aider Alert and a Special Wound Care Report available now which highlight the reasons you can’t afford to take the risk.
Plus, if you would like to have a printed catalogue to use alongside our website, ask for our 70 page Healthcare Buyers Guide that highlights all the medical products you’ll need to look after colleagues, friends and loved ones.
It’s really important to remember that our first aid kits and extensive range of medical products are made to the very highest quality standards.
When you’re dealing with people’s lives you can’t take the risk of using cheaper, and inferior alternatives. The risks are simply too great.
