Any home or business should have at least one first aid kit or cabinet filled with bandagesgauzehot and cold packsover-the-counter medications, and other essentials. Simply buying a first aid kit isn’t enough. You’ll have to regularly inspect your kit and restock it as needed.

Why You Have to Inspect the Supplies in Your First Aid Kit

If you have a first aid kit in your home or workplace, several people probably have access to it and use the supplies inside it on a regular basis. You’ll have to check periodically to find out if you’re running low on anything so you can replenish your supplies.

Even if you ask people to tell you when you need more of something, you should still perform regular inspections yourself. Someone might not notice that supplies are dwindling or might forget to tell you or leave a note. After all, when someone is injured, getting relief is the person’s top priority. 

You should also check the expiration dates on the supplies in your first aid kit or cabinet. Over-the-counter medications can become less effective with time. If the remedies in your first aid kit are expired, you’ll have to buy new ones. 

Bandages, gauze, and other supplies are packaged in ways that are meant to keep them sterile, but their packaging can get torn or damaged. Even if the packaging is still intact, items that have been sitting in a first aid kit for years might no longer be sterile.

Other supplies that are several years old might no longer be able to serve their intended purpose. Alcohol and antiseptic wipes can dry out, tape can lose its stickiness, and gloves and other personal protective equipment can tear when you put them on.
