First aid kits

first aid kits

First aid kits are essential on farms. Life on a farm comes with its own set of hazards and a first aid kit should be properly stocked and available at all times. It’s a good idea to keep a first aid kit, in the home, car, truck, shearing shed and workshop.

Well stocked first aid kits (containing bandages, scissors, saline, cold packs, sling, thermal blanket, eye wash) can mean the difference between life or death.

Everyone on a farm should know where the first aid kits are kept and should have first aid training on what to do in an emergency.
