Correct usable first aid equipment is a must in any place of work or building to ensure people’s safety. In most cases, first aid equipment must be accessible and up to standard, ready to be used at any moment.
In the event of an emergency, larger first aid equipment will likely be needed to either save a life or move a person safely. Evacuation chairs and wheelchairs provide a baseline for personal movement, along with stretchers – allowing others to carry the person in need.
Storing these larger pieces of first aid equipment need not be an area to worry about. The equipment itself comes with all the necessary information for optimal storage and placement.
