In an emergency situation you may have to act quickly, so it’s important to be familiar with your first aid kit and know what to use for different injuries. First aid kits are usually in a green box with a white cross and should be easy to find.
The contents of first aid kits in workplaces or public places should be guided by your first aid needs assessment. For more information about what should be in your workplace first aid kit, please read our Workplace first aid kit buying guide. For more information on first aid kits for schools, please read our First aid equipment for schools page.
