Following guidelines set out by the new BS 8599-1:2019, the critical injury kit can provide immediate life-saving intervention to critically injured casualties in a range of high-risk environments. The handy foil pack ensures they contents remain sterile and clean ready for use.
This compact and portable kit is designed for personal issue or for positioning in accessible areas of high-risk environments. This allows for both mass casualty distribution of a personal treatment kit and for personal issue to arrest catastrophic or serious haemorrhage in a high risk environment, before the arrival of the emergency services.
Under the new guidelines workplaces should undertake a first aid needs assessment to see if they have any ‘high risk’ areas where the critical injury kit should be located.
When the need for tourniquets and haemostatic clotting agents are identied staff should be trained in their use, please contact us to discuss your needs.
