The definitive workplace first aid kit. Made to BS8599-1 specifications to offer businesses the required level of quality to comply with health and safety laws in the UK. From a brand endorsed by the NHS and emergency services.


The only workplace first aid kit you’ll ever need - Trust a leading UK first aid supplier

All business owners in the UK are responsible for equipping their staff and business premises with first aid kits by law. The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 states that:

An employer shall provide, or ensure that there are provided, such equipment and facilities as are adequate and appropriate in the circumstances for enabling first-aid to be rendered to his employees if they are injured or become ill at work.

If you don’t provide adequate workplace first aid kits, you could face a fine or even prosecution; your business reputation would suffer, and, most importantly, you’d be putting your staff at unnecessary risk of injury. A first aid kit is a minute investment with a huge return. Ordering and installing first aid kits takes minutes and could be the difference between life and death for someone on your team. Get your business covered today with a first aid kit.

Our First Aid Kits offer you peace of Mind

There are so many different first aid kits on the market. How do you know you’re adequately covered? Our workplace first aid kit is made to BS8599-1, a specification set in place by British Standards to determine what needs to be included and certain levels of quality that need to be met. BS8599-1 has replaced HSE workplace first aid kits as the recommended product for businesses.

Steroplast offers British Standard workplace first aid kits of the highest quality to all businesses. Are you looking for a St John workplace first aid kit? Our kits and supplies are approved by MHRA and the Medical Device Directive. We’re endorsed by the NHS, British Red Cross and St John Ambulance, all of whom use our first aid kits and first aid products daily. 

Who needs a workplace first aid kit?

All businesses in the UK must provide access to at least one workplace first aid kit by law. Your risk assessment will determine the exact first aid provisions you need to supply, but in situations where no specific risk is identified, HSE recommends using standard BS8599-1 workplace first aid kits. Workplace first aid kits are usually necessary for:

  • Retail

  • Offices

  • Salons

  • Studios

  • Hospitality

  • Transport hubs

  • Construction sites

  • Schools and education

When injury strikes at work, your workforce needs to be able to access a first aid kit in 60 seconds. Where staff are split over multiple floors, there should be at least one first aid kit on each floor. First aid kits should also be positioned in a clear view with easy access and fully stocked at all times. Buy workplace first aid kit refills here when you need them.

Use our First Aid Kit Station to give first aid kits high visibility, keeping them protected from day-to-day operations and easy to grab as soon as needed. We can customise your station with the kits you need, print vital first aid instructions onto it, and add your logo and branding too.
