Where to Store First Aid Kits

from:

Since injuries can happen anywhere, it only makes sense to store first aid kits everywhere. Even if this does make logical sense, most of us don't believe we will ever need first aid kits, so we aren't fully prepared. But in the case of an injury, we want to know that we can handle ourselves no matter where we are - here are some places that you will want to store first aid kits for easy access.

In Your Home

It will help to store multiple first aid kits throughout your home - in the bathroom, kitchen, garage, etc. This will allow you to have immediate access to first aid supplies whenever you might need them. These kits don't have to be complicated in order to be useful either. Simply store a small book of first aid advice along with basic bandages, antiseptic and a breakable ice pack in a bag or box in several parts of your home. This will help you in most cases, but you might want to keep larger first aid kits in rooms like the kitchen. These can include more things like aspirin, burn ointment, and smelling salts.

In You Car

Even if you never have an accident, you should be thinking about putting first aid kits in your cars. While you might not be injured, others in your car might be or you may be able to help at the scene of an accident. If your car stalls or stops for no apparent reason and you're far from home, these first aid kits can help you manage an injury until help arrives as well. You will also want to have a first aid kit should you be stuck in bad weather when you are driving - these kits should include hand warmers and a blanket to keep you from becoming cold.

At Work

While your workplace should have first aid kits available, you might want to double check to make sure they are adequately stocked. This will help you if you should fall or simply get a paper cut. Though your employer should foot the bill on these kits, you will want to make sure that they are being managed well - even if that means putting a smaller personal first aid kit in your desk to make sure you are covered.

Other places for kits include:

* Boats
* Carry on bags
* Gym bags
* Work spaces
* Studios
* Gyms

First aid kits will help you manage minor injuries and accidents no matter where you are - but it does mean that these kits need to be readily available.
