This is only a suggestion for essential items. Each workplace should conduct a risk assessment to identify if any further items are needed.

For example, if there is a risk of burns in the work environment then the first aid kit may need more specialist equipment to deal with burn injuries.

Some countries may have specific regulations about the contents of first aid kits in the workplace. It is important to follow these first aid regulations if they apply in your country!
