Burns, bleeding, eye injury and post-accident shock can all be treated with a glovebox-ready Brenniston National Standard Motor Vehicle First Aid Kit.
This kit was designed and developed in accordance with the Australian First Aid in the Workplace National Code of Practice and is intended to help you deal with common roadside first aid incidents.
The contents of this Brenniston National Standard Workplace First Aid Kit are regulated by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration, and it’s registered under our Australian Therapeutic Goods licence number 145972, just like every other Brenniston National Standard Workplace First Aid Kit.
Is it a legal requirement to have a first aid kit in a company vehicle?
Every Australian workplace is required by law to have a fully compliant first aid kit appropriate to the anticipated dangers and hazards at that workplace. More than one kit may be required depending on the size and scope of a workplace.
Factory floors, warehouses, workshops, retail outlets and offices are just a few examples of workplaces. Workplaces include building sites, and vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, hire cars, delivery vans and company fleets.
Workplace safety encompasses the control of threats to the health and safety of everyone in a company or organisation, not just employees. Workers’ health and safety, as well as that of customers, visitors, contractors and volunteers are all included.
What should be in a car first aid kit?
Bandages, adhesive dressings, antiseptic and gauze swabs are some of the most common first aid items that should be in every kit.
It’s important to seek out a well-designed, high quality motor vehicle first aid kit that ensures workplace compliance.
If your workplace is audited by a government safety inspector and your first aid kits aren’t stocked with the right items within the correct expiry dates, you can find yourself in serious trouble.
Brenniston National Standard Motor Vehicle First Aid Kit
One of the great things about a Brenniston National Standard Motor Vehicle Kit is the way it’s packaged.
When you open it, everything is on display in three transparent compartments where you can easily find what you need.
Disposable gloves are handy straightaway because in an emergency you must use personal protective equipment to avoid infection.
There are cleansing wipes for cleaning wounds along with dressings and all-purpose triangular bandages. An amputated parts bag. A thermal blanket in the event of shock. A notebook and pencil for recording important information.
Saline ampoules are ideal for when you’re on the road and may not have access to running water to clean a wound or flush an eye.
Burn gel takes the heat out of a burn and cools it, easing the pain and helping with recovery and healing.
Conforming gauze bandages hold dressings in place, while combine and low-adherent dressings protect burns and absorb heavy bleeding.
Hypoallergenic paper tape secures an eye pad without damaging sensitive skin.
A resuscitation face shield provides a hygienic barrier in the event of providing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Forceps allow you to safely handle contaminated waste, and high-quality stainless-steel scissors can cut bandages, tape, and even some clothing.
Sterile splinter probes help remove foreign objects from under the skin, and safety pins keep bandages in place.
First aid and CPR instructions cover a range of common first aid emergencies.
A contents list lets you easily check and replace used or expired items.
