Equipment provided to help deal with the initial management of any injury or illness suffered at work.

Minimum provision The minimum level of first aid equipment is a suitably stocked first aid box. There may be a need for 1) additional materials and equipment such as scissors, adhesive tape, disposable aprons and individually wrapped moist wipes. They may be put in the first aid container if there is room or stored separately; 2) items such as protective equipment where first aiders may have to enter dangerous atmospheres. This should be securely stored near the first aid box, in the first aid room or the hazard area, as appropriate. Access to the equipment should be restricted to those trained in its use.
If mains tap water is not readily available for eye irrigation, at least one litre of sterile water or sterile normal saline (0.9%) in sealed, disposable containers should be provided.
