Open spaces such as construction sites, short term events and garage forecourts can be difficult to provide for in terms of safety provisions, especially if you require your extinguishers to be portable or need to relocate them to a new site at a later date. However, if you have employees or members of the public on your site, you have a duty to ensure their safety.
UltraFire offer you the perfect solution for all your fire and health and safety needs; a bespoke mobile extinguisher site stand / safety stand tailor-made to your needs. Site stands are not a new development, but the UltraFire is the first to allow you to choose exactly how yours is configured. Available in a range of bright colours to indicate its purpose – red for fire, green for first aid, yellow for spills kits, blue for PPE – the stand is infinitely variable in its design by letting you choose what kit it contains, what information it displays and any additional alarm features you may need.
Certain information such as fire emergency procedures must be displayed by law. You also need a means of alerting everyone on site in the event of an emergency. Your bespoke stand can display a range of safety information signs and can even include battery powered fire alarms and accident sirens as well as extinguishers and, for example, spill kits to ensure you meet your H&S and legal duties. And being mobile, your stand can simply be wheeled to the next location as your site expands or moves.

Since the introduction of the new first aid kit standard BS 8599-1:2011, St John Ambulance have released a range of first aid kits that fully comply with the new standard.
Offering first aid kits with suitable and useful first aid components has always been at the forefront of St John Ambulance’s provision of first aid products. This philosophy included adding extra equipment and extra supplies in excess of the HSE recommendations in cases where St John Ambulance felt that the end-user would be better served with extra components.
BS 8599-1:2011 has now cemented these increases of items needed in first aid kits, specifying an eye wash solution in all travel kits and more plasters, nitrile powder-free gloves and scissors capable of cutting through clothing in all first aid kits. The standard also ensures better quality equipment is being supplied, with components having to meet a quality level to be used in the new kits. The HSE guidelines that provided first aid kit content advisories have been completely replaced by the new standard; the phase out of HSE kits will begin on September 1st and businesses should be complying with the new standard by January 2012.
As an approved reseller of St John Ambulance first aid products, Safelincs have the complete range of British Standard compliant first aid kits, including hard case workplace kits, catering kits and travel first aid kits.
Since the 2011 revision, there have been several alterations and the new BS 8599-1:2019 standard was introduced. In addition to a number of new kits, BS 8599-1:2019 saw minor changes that altered the composition of the workplace first aid kits:
- Safety pins have been removed in order to reduce the number of needle stick injuries
- The number of tape rolls has been increased in the medium and large first aid kits
- The number of medium dressings has been reduced in all kits whilst the number of large dressings has been increased
All our BS 8599-1 kits are compliant to this new standard (BS 8599-1:2019). View our full range of First Aid Kits.
There are many regulations regarding the storage of harmful substances, personal protective equipment and first-aid equipment. These regulations are put into place to ensure the safety of employees in the workplace and require the employer to carry out mandatory risk assessments to identify and store hazardous substances correctly.
Using chemicals or other hazardous substances at work can put people’s health at risk. COSHH cabinets are designed to store any substance that carry warning labels such as “Toxic”, “Irritant” or “Harmful”. They have removable sump trays in the base to catch any spillages and prevent leakage. These robust cabinets must meet the strict requirments of the COSHH regulations 2002.
The Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981 place a duty on employers to provide adequate first-aid equipment, facilities and personnel to their employees. First-aid cabinets are designed to meet the storage requirements of these regulations and keep all first-aid equipment in a central, identifiable, location where they are easily accessed in case of emergency.
PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) cabinets are ideal for storing any protective equipment in an easily identifiable are. PPE includes equipment such as safety footwear, hard hats, high visibility waistcoats, goggles, life jackets, respirators and safety harnesses. These cabinets must comply with The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1994.
To aid employers with the storage of these substances, protective equipment and first-aid equipment, and to help ensure the safety of employees, Safelincs has added three fantastic lines to its Hazardous Storage Cabinets range.
