Depending on the where they are used, first aid kits should adhere to ANSI Z308.1-1998 – “Minimum Requirements For Workplace First-aid Kits,” when compiling them.
When choosing a cabinet, container, or bag for your first aid kit, it is best to decide if it will be stationary or portable unit. If the first aid kit is going to be stationary unit, a cabinet mounted on a wall will suffice. However, for a portable first aid kit, there is everything available from a small nylon bag to a medium-size cart on wheels.
It is advisable to make sure portable units used outside, be waterproof and durable to withstand being dropped.
