Our First Aid Kits for Restaurants and Commercial Kitchens
Identifying the exact type of first aid kit needed for a restaurant can be tricky. However, most restaurants will be best-served with a Class A first aid kit that contains plenty of supplies for treating both lacerations and burns. Here are just a few of our most popular first aid kits found in restaurant settings:
3 Shelf Class A Industrial with Liner #613A
ProStat First Aid Kit 0613 is a wall-mounted Class A first aid cabinet perfectly suited to meet the needs of many restaurants. As a cabinet, this first aid solution contains a greater amount of medical supplies than most first aid kits, which is ideal for a setting where minor injuries are fairly common. This kit provides the means to handle most common medical issues, including gauze pads, antiseptic wipes, nitrile gloves, bandages, and supplies for treating burns.
#50 Class A Steel (0650A) or Plastic (0670A)
The Class A kits 0650 and 0670 are portable first aid kit options for restaurant settings. The #50 kits come in either steel or plastic cases, making this item flexible enough to be housed either within a kitchen or in a restaurant office. The #50 kits includes a wide variety of medical supplies, including less common items such as ammonia inhalant, sting wipes, and eye pad strips.
Common Restaurant Medical Issues
While restaurants don’t typically carry as high of an injury risk as industrial settings, there are still many injuries and medical issues that commonly occur within restaurants. Here are some of the most common issues that your first aid kit must be able to address:
Cuts and Punctures
Sprains and Strains
Wherever knives are involved, cuts and puncture wounds are always a risk. Cuts are highly common in kitchen settings, as chefs and line cooks work with a variety of sharp implements to prepare food. This means any restaurant first aid kit should be well stocked with appropriate materials such as bandages and gauze.
Possibly even more common than cuts, burns happen almost every day in restaurants and commercial kitchens. This is simply a side-effect of working with hot ovens, boiling water, frying oil, and other common kitchen items. Restaurant first aid kits should provide adequate supplies for treating burns, potentially more so than any other workplace.
From slips and falls to injuries sustained while carrying heavy equipment, sprains and strains are also relatively common in restaurant settings. Restaurant first aid kits should contain wraps, braces, painkillers, and other medical supplies necessary for treating such injuries promptly.
What should be in a restaurant first aid kit?
Most restaurants and commercial kitchens will be best-served with a Class A first aid kit. A restaurant first aid kit should also provide ample supplies for dealing with injuries common within restaurants, particularly puncture wounds and burns.
