    • Why Buy a Business First Aid Kit for Home?

      If you want a "Pretty" first aid kit, by all means, purchase a consumer first aid kit - but if you want a first aid kit for function, consider business first aid kits for home, too.

      We've been selling first aid kits for a long, long time... we have a good handle on what people want and what they need. If you have a specific personal use for your first aid kit, then by all means looks at specific use kits that are designed for that use ( see our list below ) these really do have special content for special purposes, but if you are thinking of an all purpose first aid kit for home, we encourage you to consider a commercial first aid kit.

      Why?

      urg-3681-best-selling-first-aid-kit-items-press-releaseConsumer kits are often designed for "curb appeal" rather than actual usefulness or practical application. More money goes into packaging or high "piece count" than into including what you will really need when emergencies occur.

      Commercial First Aid Kits comply with OSHA requirements and ANSI Standards (OSHA regulations cite the ANSI Standards as their basic guidelines - learn more about the current ANSI Z308 Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies)

      This means the contents have been analyzed and decided upon so the first aid kits will have the content required to attend to the most common injuries - not just what sounds neat. When buying an ANSI compliant first aid kit, you know that the assortment and quantity of supplies included in a first aid kit were chosen based upon a review of increased workplace incidents requiring first aid treatment, similar international standards and current practices in treating injuries. so the decisions on content come from real-life needs.

      An American National Standard implies a consensus of those substantially concerned with its scope and provisions. An American National Standard is intended as a guide to aid the manufacturer, the consumer, and general public. The existence of an American National Standard does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether he has approved the standard or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standard. American National Standards are subject to periodic review and users are cautioned to obtain the latest edition.

    • First Aid Kit Buying Guide - What to look for in a First Aid Kit

      First aid kits are our business. Since 1993 we've been focused on providing "quality, comprehensive first aid kits at a fair price"

      As experts we thought we'd pass along a few tips we've learned along the way on what you should look for when buying a first aid kit regardless of brand.

      Look for variety of components
      Many first aid kits attempt to sell a kit comprised of a box of adhesive bandages and a few tablets. How many different type of injuries will this kit treat? Not very many! Don't be fooled by quantity of components, look for variety of components! The idea is to include components for real life emergencies, not what might let the kit sell for a few dollars less.

      Make sure all basic categories are covered
      Any first aid kit should contain at least something from the following groups: Antiseptics (something to kill germs to prevent infection), Injury treatment (items to deal with injuries such as butterlfy closures and cold compresses), Bandages (a variety of bandages to dress and cover a variety of wounds), Instruments (tweezers, barrier gloves), and Medicines (analgesics at a minimum).

      Kit organization
      First aid kits are only used in a time of need. If you, or someone you are near, are injured and need assistance a first aid kit won't do any good if you can't find what you need. Look for a kit that has its contents nicely organized so you can locate supplies readily.

      Quality components
      Adhesive bandages that don't stick, poorly shaped bandages, component packaging that falls apart, a case that doesn't stand up... a poor quality kit is the last thing you need in dealing with an emergency.

      Information
      A first aid kit does no good if you don't know what to do with it. Frankly, most first aid kits include some kind of guide, but their usefulness can vary widely. Make sure the first aid guide in your kit is from a credible source, contains the latest medical advice, and make sure it its laid out in a way that can be understood when under stress.

      We encourage you to make sure that your family is fully prepared for emergencies. Evaluate your household, keep a first aid kit everywhere there is likely to be an emergency... around the house, in each car, in backpacks, and in your RV or boat. FirstAidStore.com has the broadest array of kits available to help you be prepared — something for every application or use, and all developed for real life emergencies.
