“From February 2013 a new British Standard for the contents of Motor Vehicle First Aid Kit has been established. These Motorist First Aid Kits have been developed in partnership with the BHTA, BSI (British Standards Institute), medical experts, manufacturers and key stakeholders.
The standard specifies the components of three sizes of first aid kits (small, medium and large) for use in motor vehicles. The introduction of this standard will inform motorists on the suitable first aid equipment they should have available and encourage more drivers to have first aid kits available.
The correct first aid kit for each vehicle is determined by an assessment of the potential risks associated with that vehicle and the number of potential passangers. (Small for motorbikes/mopeds, Medium for cars, taxis & people carriers, Large for buses, lorries and other large vehicles. You should have 1 x Large kit for every 20 people on your large vehicle)
