Does anyone have any recommendations for first aid kits for carrying on farm machines.

I'm a bit of a klutz and always injuring myself and would like to be able to help if ever came upon a accident where someone else hurt.

Contents need to have eye wash/patch, burn cream, and probably with putting a tourniquet bandage in also. Then general plasters

Did a first aid course ran by a guy in the army. He had some interesting methods of treating injuries. Have some Israeli bandages at farm. They would be essential.

Got some anti clotting powder. He showed us a video from the US army where they cut open a pig, then healed it again with anti clotting powder. It looked like it formed cement when mixed with blood. Its bloody expensive though.

I'm on blood thinners so seem to bleed for a while when I get cut.

if you are always hurting yourself do you think you are safe with a first aid kit?🤔 :ROFLMAO:

You’d be better off getting one of those sheltered housing community alarm emergency cords fitted in the cab! 🤭

If you can find a good place for them - always the hard part - put one in each vehicle (along with a fire extinguisher if you can) then you know you have one for the rare times they are needed.
Its not a bad idea to have a separate bag with a few plasters and some wipes in it so you can easily sort out small cuts without raiding the first aid kit, as they don't tend to get restocked after small items are taken out.

Was told by the HSE that first aid kits should be binned after 5 years if used or not

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
