Do you have a first aid kit in your car? Carrying a kit could enable you to save a life Not only can it prove crucial in the event of a road crash, but also in serious mishaps such as cuts, scrapes and burns. That's why the BSi published BS8599-2:2014 - the new national standard for first aid provision within motor vehicles. Effective of March 2014, the standard aims to improve safety for all UK motorists by equipping vehicles with the most appropriate first response medical supplies necessary to treat road side injuries. Making it easier than ever before to ensure your motor vehicles are stocked with appropriate first aid provision, BS8599-2:2014 specifies requirements for the compilation of first aid components in three sizes of first aid kits - Small, Medium and Large.
