Choosing The Best Car First Aid Kit For You

Much like our range of first aid kits, we have a great range on offer when it comes to vehicle first aid kits. We can provide you with just the item you’ve been after to ensure the health and safety of passengers and drivers. Our kits are compliant with the British Standard for vehicle first aid kits and we also have a large range of individual items for refilling and replacement purposes. It’s important to remember to replace any items in a vehicle first aid kit once they’ve been used, but it’s also just as important to keep an eye on the use by date of any sterile items in the kit so that all items remain in date and therefore useable in the event of an emergency.

The British Standard Compliant Vehicle First Aid Kits were developed by a team of medical and emergency services professionals to ensure that all the items included are the most suitable for any likely need. This kit should be used in the event of a roadside accident or emergency before the appropriate emergency services arrive.

It is important to remember to replace any items in a vehicle first aid kit once they’ve been used, but it’s also just as important to keep an eye on the use by date of any sterile items in the kit so that all items remain in date and are therefore useable in the event of an emergency.

Our range of British Standard Compliant Vehicle First Aid Kit Refills can help you keep your vehicle first aid kits fully stocked and refilled in the event that certain items have been used or have gone past their use by dates. Our kits also come in handy, easy-to-store packs and some can be wall-mounted for easy access.

Please be advised that in the event of a major accident, these kits are not intended to act as an alternative to seeking medical help but are meant to serve as a complementary device to help reduce the initial impact of any accident or emergency that may have occurred.

Choosing the right size car first aid kit

The kits are available in a number of sizes, and as a result the contents do differ, but generally you should expect a vehicle first aid kit contents to include the following types of items: dressings, bandages, shears, cleansing wipes, a foil blanket, gloves, a resuscitation device and plasters, as well as a guidance leaflet.

When considering the best first aid kit for your car, you have a few options to choose from. These options include:

  • Small kits – these kits are perfect for motorbikes and mopeds and are recommended for small vehicles which will carry a maximum of three passengers. These petite kits are easy to store efficiently in small vehicles and are packed with first aid tools and supplies.

  • Medium kits – these kits are ideal for cars, vans, trucks and taxis and are for vehicles which will carry a maximum of eight passengers.

  • Large kits – the large kits are designed for larger vehicles with high occupancy rates such as minibuses, coaches and buses. These kits are recommended for vehicles which carry a maximum of 16 passengers. If the vehicle carries more than 16 passengers, it is recommended that the vehicle stock more than one vehicle first aid kit.

For an even more comprehensive kit when it comes to possible roadside accidents, we recommend our Roadside Emergency First Aid Kit. This not only includes first aid dressings, plasters, bandages and shears, but also, depending on the size of the kit you choose to purchase, includes items such as a fire extinguisher, high visibility vests, a torch, a triangle warning sign and breathalysers.

In the event of an accident or an emergency, this kind of self-preparedness when it comes to vehicle first aid kits and car emergency kits could really help diminish the effects of an emergency and ensure any drivers or passengers who have been impacted are able to respond quickly and safely, protecting them from further harm or injury.

First aid kit storage

When selecting your first aid kit, you should also consider whether you would prefer for your kit to be stored in a soft bag, or if you would prefer the Aura Box. You should take into account where the kit will be stored. Will you need to mount the kit to a surface? Or will it be stowed beneath a seat? Aura boxes come with a bracket, making them easy to mount to a wall. However, if you are looking for a first aid kit which can be tucked beneath a seat or into the storage area of a moped, a first aid kit in a soft bag may be a better option. All of the bags are made of durable material and have a handle for easy access and transport.

Winter car preparedness

Anyone who has experienced hazardous driving conditions in the winter knows that it pays to be prepared when driving in the winter months. Sometimes, unprepared driving in winter can have harmful or even deadly consequences. A 2014 Department of Transport(DfT) study found that 2,274 people were slightly injured, 251 people were seriously injured, and 29 people were killed in reported road accidents when there was snow or ice on the road.

Seton’s Winter Car Care Kit is a handy and easily stowable kit which contains everything needed for driving in winter conditions. The kit includes de-icer spray, a de-mist pad, foil blanket, ice scraper, torch and mini first aid kit.

In addition to providing your drivers with winter car kits and car first aid kits, you can take a further step to ensure road safety by drafting a winter driving policy for your staff. When the weather reaches a certain point, it is impossible to travel, and workers should be discouraged from driving at all. However, it is important to train staff for driving in adverse weather – including vehicle preparation, emergency arrangements and journey planning.

Training your workers

Van first aid kits, winter car care kits and roadside emergency kits are one way to prepare your drivers for accidents and unexpected events on the road. However, it is also important to ensure that your drivers are trained on how to use, store and maintain the kits so that they continue to be useful for the future.

Also, roadside first aid kits are only one part of a driving safety plan. It is important to train your drivers on how to react to roadside emergencies. This takes planning and may include first aid training or training on vehicle maintenance and preparedness in any situation.
