First aid is the emergency treatment provided while waiting for medical personnel to arrive. Even the safest workplaces are bound to experience injuries and medical emergencies eventually. Is your facility prepared to quickly respond to the medical first aid needs of your employees and guests? Omnisurge offers first aid kits ranging from personal kits for your home or car, to large first aid kits for the workplace. All our kits are from top manufacturers, and comply with all relevant government regulations and healthcare standards.

It’s necessary to have the proper first aid equipment

It's also important that employees know where this equipment is and how to use it. Finally, proper training helps people administer appropriate emergency treatment, anything from applying an ice pack on a sprained ankle to mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Make sure to provide your facility with the best first aid with Omnisurge's range of safety products.

First aid kits are classified based on the assortment and quantity of first aid supplies intended to deal with most types of injuries and sudden illnesses that may be encountered in the workplace. These may include major and minor wounds, minor burns, sprains and strains, and eye injuries. As each work environment is unique, it is expected that the contents of each kit will be supplemented as needed based upon the recommendations of a person competent in first aid.

Occupational Health and Safety Act Act 85 of 1993

To provide for the health and safety of persons at work and for the health and safety of persons in connection with the use of plant and machinery; the protection of persons other than persons at work against hazards to health and safety arising out of or in connection with the activities of persons at work; to establish an advisory council for occupational health and safety; and to provide for matters connected therewith.

All our First Aid Kits comply with the requirements of the General Safety Regulations of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. According to this Act, First Aid Kits should be accessible for the treatment of injured persons at all times, and all stock should be replaced when used. To ensure the completeness and usable condition of all supplies, first aid kits should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis. Some supplies may have expiration dates; any that are beyond that marked date should be replaced to ensure that it meets the needs of the workplace and hazards faced at all times.

The Importance Of Bandages And Emergency Pressure Dressings

Shallow cuts, scrapes, and abrasions may be minor in the realm of workplace injuries, but they should be tended to immediately. A well-stocked first aid kit is important to have on hand so that workers can treat their wounds in a timely manner. They also help ensure that minor injuries do not become infected.

To treat wounds onsite, keeping first aid supplies in one central location, or multiple locations in larger facilities, is the basis for an effective and useful first aid program. Workers should be trained to know where these items are kept so that if an injury occurs, they will be able to quickly find and properly use bandages, emergency pressure dressings and other items. This knowledge, as well as the proper protocol for severe wounds, is essential to maintaining a sound and safe workplace.

Omnisurge stocks a comprehensive range of sterilised and unsterilised bandages and dressings - waterproof and non-waterproof tapes and plasters, all to meet your medical needs.

For wounds and burns we supply Burnshield Hydrogel, and various other first aid dressings that are low-lint, absorbent, aerating and comfortable. Omnisurge have wound dressing strips, that can be cut to size and are used to dress cuts, grazes, abrasions and stitches. Gauze and swabs come in sterile and non-sterile cotton varieties, used to clean and separate wounds. Omnisurge supply these items in bulk, as they are a necessity in any hospital, general practice or first aid kit. Omnisurge also stock paraffin gauze and alcohol swabs for effective means of cleaning and soothing wounds, also used in conjunction with antiseptics.
