Motor Vehicle First Aid Kits

Having a first aid kit whilst travelling in a car or any other vehicle can be a lifesaver. Not only can it prove crucial in the event of a road crash, but also in less serious mishaps such as cuts, scrapes and burns.

In February 2014, the British Standard for motor vehicle first aid kits was launched; BS 8599-2. This standard aims to improve safety for all UK motorists by equipping vehicles with a first aid kit scaled specifically to the size of the vehicle and number of passengers, while providing the essential first response supplies needed to deal with a road side incident.

This standard aims to make it easier than ever before to ensure your motor vehicle is stocked with appropriate first aid provision, specifying requirements for the compilation of first aid components in three sizes of first aid kits - small, medium and large.
