Maintaining a First-Aid Kit

Under the leadership of Jason Rubach, RCS Northvale in Northvale, NJ, provides quality cleaning and safety products for use in many different business settings. RCS Northvale also helps businesses prepare for emergencies by selling first-aid kits and supplies.

It is important for businesses to prepare for emergencies. While the types of emergencies may vary, a first-aid kit is a good tool to have on hand. However, when you buy one for your business, you shouldn’t just put it on a shelf and forget about it. It needs to be maintained.

You should periodically evaluate the contents. Make sure that all the components of the kit are present and that there is a suitable inventory of products. Additionally, if there are battery-operated devices in the kit, make sure that they work. Replace the batteries, if needed, so that all tools in the kit are in working order. Additionally, some items commonly found in first-aid kits have a shorter shelf life than others. Replace any medications or products that have expired or gone out of date.
