No matter what type of business you run and how large or small it is, accidents can happen. That’s why it’s critical to have one or more first aid kits readily available. Employees will be able to treat minor problems, such as cuts, themselves and then quickly get back to work. In the case of a more serious issue, workers will be able to provide first aid for the victim until an ambulance arrives, which can greatly reduce the risk of long-term disability or death.
Make Sure That Essential Supplies Are Available at All Times
Your first aid kits should always be well-stocked so that workers will have access to vital supplies when they need them. Employees will use supplies in a first aid kit on a regular basis, and they may not notice or tell you if you’re running low on something or if products have expired. You will need to have someone regularly check your first aid supplies and replenish them as necessary.
Restocking first aid kits can be a time-consuming chore, especially if there are several kits spread across a large building or multiple buildings. Your employees already have enough responsibilities. UniShield can restock your first aid kits on a routine basis so that you’ll always have what you need and so that your workers won’t have to take time away from tasks that are critical to running your business.
