First Aid products need to be purchased proactively so they are on hand when an accident or emergency occurs. Accidents are bound to happen in the workplace. A range of first aid products might include: First aid kits, first aid medicinal, antiseptics, topicals, bandages, wound care, tapes, burn care products, emergency response products, biohazard products, eye care, eyewash stations, and skin care products.
