There are useful instructions on how to create a first aid kit for individual needs. The guide also covers what might be included in home kit or a travel kit – and useful advice on how to stock and maintain the first aid kit at the best price.

First aid kits are an essential part of everyday family life. They need to be securely stored, but easily located when required, fully stocked and ready for any family emergency in the home or in the car.

For safety reasons they must be kept somewhere out of reach of young children but known to older family members. The contents of the first aid kit will depend on each family’s needs. That is why the first step to creating one is to do a household risk assessment.

It is important to acknowledge and gauge likely dangers that will depend on age, hobbies, and lifestyle choices. If anyone has a medical condition that can lead to a potentially dangerous situation, this also needs considering.

Any local emergency service, emergency roadway service providers and the poison helpline should always be made readily available. It is also a good idea to pre-prepare medical authorization forms in the event of an emergency and provide short medical history forms for everybody in the family.

The next important step is to decide what are the basics to put in the kit. The risk assessment will suggest sticking plasters in a range of sizes, easy to use bandages, a sling, antiseptic wipes, eyewash, face masks, disposable gloves, essential items such as scissors and tweezers, thermometer, painkillers, and sting treatments.

A travel kit may need to be more comprehensive as a drug store may not be close to hand. A well-equipped first aid kit on the go might also include medicines for fever, cough, sore throat and insect bites and stings.
