The NEW British Standard for vehicle first aid kits was launched by BSi on February 1st 2014. Using the latest data, including accident and research statistics used in F1 racing car design, Industrial and Medical Professionals have produced a new standard to meet the medical needs of road traffic victims during the critical period prior to the arrival of the Emergency Services. Components have been specifically selected for ease of use, and for coping with (without any special training) both minor and major road traffic accident injuries. To account for various types of vehicle and passenger carrying capability, the BS8599-2 kit is available in three sizes. Whether a Motorcycle, Bus, Van, or Double Decker Bus, there is a suitable kit. The size and the quantity of kits for any vehicle, is determined by the vehicle type and passenger numbers. The new British Standard BS8599-2 compliant range of first aid kits represent a major step forward in road safety.

LARGE VEHICLE FIRST AID KIT BS8599-2 COMPLIANT For minibus, bus and coach. (maximum 16 passengers, larger passenger vehicles will require multiple kits to suit)
