We suggest you have the following items in your first aid kit:

  • Protective gloves (e.g. latex)
  • A one‐way ventilator device (valve for mouth‐to‐mouth)
  • An assortment of plasters
  • Sterile bandages / dressings
  • Triangular bandages
  • “Elastoplast” strapping
  • “Savlon” or alternative antiseptic solution
  • Sterile gauze
  • Antiseptic Cream
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • A pack of glucose sweets
  • Suntan cream
  • Sterile water
  • A space blanket
  • Local emergency telephone number list
  • A complete list of the contents of your kit (including expiry dates)

Please note that First Aid kits are just that – for First Aid. Specialist / prescribed medication for team members should not be stored in a communal first aid kit. Each team member should store these in a safe waterproof place with the prescription and dosage details. A copy of the prescription and dosage details should also be given to your team leader so that he/she is aware that you are on special medication. Items deemed too specialised (including medication) may be removed from your kit by the medical staff.
