First_Aid_Kit


Each vehicle contains both a plaster kit, and a First Aid kit.

Both kits are checked anually, and the First Aid kit is sealed to ensure it is complete. If you open the First Aid kit, we require an acident form to be completed and handed into Union Reception on return from your trip. This is because we need to restock and reseal the kit before the vehicle's next trip. Unsealing of a kit without an accident form or good reason will be finable due to the cost of rechecking and resealing the box. It is important to check the box is sealed before driving off, as in a minibus the contence must be complete for the Small Bus Permit to be valid.
