A good first aid kit is a must in all workshops, as accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and it’s better to be prepared than to find yourself scrambling around for a bandage or disinfectant.
Let's face it... we all know it's gonna happen! And, the possible scenarios in which you could use a first aid kit are virtually endless. A small cut may seem insignificant at the time, but if it gets infected you could be out of action for weeks.
A first aid kit is meant to be used to treat minor cuts, abrasions, and burns. You should never rely on a first aid kit to handle more severe injuries. An effective first aid kit provides plasters, bandages, scissors, tweezers, and antiseptic wipes, as well as burn ointment, eye wash, and gauze pads.
