Across the worlds businesses are starting to realise the importance of ensuring that members of their staff are trained as first aiders and in fact in many places around the world such as the United Kingdom it is actually compulsory to have a set amount of trained first aiders on site at all times. First aiders provide a crucial role in both work and personal environments; they are the people that need to assess the clear and present danger and often they are the first responders who can mean the difference from someone loosing or keeping their life.
Of course they also need to have the most up to date first aid kids and these need to be checked on a regular basis. There is no point in having a sub-standard kit as this can cause further complications and should the first aider not have all of the correct kit it can probably cause more stress in an already stressful environment. A first aiders kit will contain all of the equipment needed for first response such as breathing apparatus, sterile gloves, plasters, bandages for burns, bandages to create splints, cleaning alcohol and various other equipment needed for first response.
