First Aid Kits

What do I need in my first aid kit?

First aid kits come in many shapes and sizes, and are available off the shelf in most pharmacies. Not all first aid kits are created equal - so what do you need to carry in yours?

A small first aid kit can fit in a small pouch or bumbag and weigh a couple of hundred grams. A large first aid kit may require a large rucksack, or even a vehicle to carry.

The first part of identifying the required contents for your first aid kit will be undertaking a thorough risk assessment of the activity you will be undertaking, and a needs analysis. Once that's complete, you will need an understanding of the level of training of your first aider has, the climate, constraints and the participants in the activity. Reading one web page, no matter how well researched or written, will replace the thought that goes into this exercise.
