Employers are responsible for meeting the first aid needs of any employee working away from the main site, whether that work is remotely based at a permanent location (e.g. security staff, petrol stations, warehousing etc.), or involves regular travel (e.g. delivery drivers, couriers, health visitors etc.). Individual risk assessments are needed to establish what provisions would be suitable for the practical circumstances of each employee.
A risk assessment may conclude that lone workers should carry first aid equipment, undertake first aid training (including how to self-administer first aid), and have access to adequate first aid facilities. It should also be remembered that many employees face work-related road risks, and employers also need to take this into account.
These neat one-person first aid kits are intended for the particular use of one individual and most of them are compact enough to store without difficulty in a desk drawer or vehicle compartment. The contents conform to the minimum requirements of the HSE regulations for lone working and are considered as the essentials for individual employees that are working at low risk without close or direct supervision.
