For portable first aid kits, storing them in a proper place until the kits are used is essential. However in this tip, storage of a first aid kit does not mean placing it in the bottom of a box at the back of a cupboard.
Instead, a first aid kit should be stored in a location that is easy accessible. In the event of an emergency, such as a chemical splashing into eyes, every second is important before first aid is administered.
Therefore, the best place to keep your first aid kit is an area within your workplace, which is easily accessible to everyone, and free from moisture and heat.
