Bunzl Catering Supplies’ first aid kits for catering environments and the workplace

Monday June 3, 2024

Bunzl Catering Supplies is showcasing two collections of first aid supplies, designed specifically for catering environments, and the workplace.  The ‘catering’ range includes a small and large Aura3 box – the latest evolution of a first aid staple, with an all-blue content. The ‘workplace’ range contains a small and medium Aura3 BS8599-1:2019 kits (and the medium travel and motoring kit) – better for the workplace and better for the planet, providing quick and easy access to first aid, fully complaint with the latest standard requirements.

Aura3 first aid kits represent a first for the first aid industry, the first 100% recycled and fully recyclable first aid kit box on the market! The fresh new box designs feature colour coded, embossed, and screen-printed lids. The new graphics stand out from a distance, enabling quick identification in an emergency, especially in a busy catering environment or workplace.

The single clip closure enables quicker access with one hand in an emergency. Compact and convenient, the integral brackets on Aura3 first aid kits allow easy placement and fixing and, with the addition of a tamper seal tucked neatly under the handle, it can be visually monitored by Health and Safety managers in an instant.

British Standard compliant first aid kits reflect the most up-to-date changes in both catering and workplace practice and risks, making them demonstrably more ‘fit for purpose’ in today’s environments. The quantities and sizes of first aid kits to be used in a catering or workplace environment should be determined by the number of people on site and the category of hazard they are exposed to.

Conducting a risk assessment allows a business to establish which kit is required to satisfy their first aid requirements. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is a UK government agency responsible for the encouragement, regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare, and for research into occupational risks in Great Britain.

The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 states that employers have a legal duty to make sure that their employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work. Accidents and illness can happen at any time. First aid can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones.

These first aid kits are part of a much larger, comprehensive range of first aid provisions from Bunzl Catering Supplies, for more information about these kits or the complete range, please contact us.
