British Standard Vehicle First Aid Kits compliant with BS8599-2:2019 for UK Motorists
In some vehicles such as passenger-carrying vehicles, and company cars, a vehicle first aid kit is a legal requirement. In private vehicles, it is not the law to a have a first aid kit in the car, but it is still highly recommended.
When it's a matter of life and death, you must be prepared
- If an accident happens, you'll want to be prepared with an emergency kit for potentially life-threatening injuries
- Major trauma injuries require specialist 'trauma dressings' so that heavy blood loss can be contained
- Steroplast's new British Standard vehicle first aid kits are equipped with these trauma dressings so that a life can be saved.
Easy to store - and comes in 3 sizes, boxed or bagged
The car first aid kit takes up very little room in your car and could be placed under the seat in the boot, out of harm's way.
Not only can it prove crucial in the event of a road crash, but also in serious mishaps such as cuts, scrapes and burns. That's why the BSI published BS8599-2:2019 - the new national standard for first aid provision within motor vehicles.
Effective of 2019, the standard aims to improve safety for all UK motorists by equipping vehicles with the most essential first response medical supplies necessary to treat roadside injuries. Making it easier than ever before to ensure your motor vehicles are stocked with appropriate first aid provisions.
