Are your first aid kits in compliance with Z308.1-2009? That’s the not so new ANSI standard that OSHA refers to as the standard for the “minimum requirement for a workplace first aid kit.”
If your first aid supplier is still talking about Z308.1-2003 then they have missed the boat and you are not in compliance with the new standard.
Your arrest and imprisonment is not imminent, but you really should have a look at the new standard and start thinking about implementation. The good news is that it isn’t really that hard if your first aid supplier is ready to the changes. The big change is that the ten line items that are required now also have to be properly labeled.
BleedArrest(TM) from Hemostasis LLC, is the new kid on the block in the exciting new area of stop bleeding products. We are thrilled to introduce our readers and customers to this cutting edge line of products.
BleedArrest(TM) brings some convincing advantages to the stop bleeding product line up.
First off we were delighted to find a replacement product for the Seal-On Nasal Sponges which are no longer manufactured here in the United States. The Seal-On product was a very popular item and we are confident that the BleedArrrest product will fill the void handily. Not only are the BleedArrest nasal sponges effective, at about half the price of the Seal-On product, they are cost competitive as well.
Currently we are offering the Nasal Sponges and the BleedArrest Combo Pack.
The Combo Pack comes with two of the Nasal Sponges and one of their multiple use 5 gram bellows. The bellows which you can have a look at here BleedArrest Bellows
The bellows is an innovative new delivery concept for a stop bleeding powder. This type of delivery system allows for accurate delivery and multiple use potential.
BleedArrest is made in the United States and is an all natural product safe for all ages, easy to use and physician recommended. BleedArrest stops the bleeding instantly without a burning or stinging sensation and is safe for patients that are on blood thinners.
So, what is BleedArrest? BleedArrest(TM) contains PolyFlex(TM) Natural Clotting PolymerNCP(TM) which is an advanced natrual biopolymer scientists have developed to be configurred into a flowable particle or advanced hemostatic spong to control sever external bleeding within seconds.
In everyday language the BleedArrest particles when applied to blood rapidly absorbs the water out of the blood so that coagulation can happen instantly. Simple and effective.

A number of years ago a National restaurant chain asked us to develop a grab and go emergency burn first aid kit. Without mentioning names, this particular chain wanted to avoid being sued by their customers. We’ve all heard about the woman who spilled hot coffee into her lap and then sued the restaurant that sold her the coffee! In this case the woman won a several hundred thousand dollar settlement.
So our customer decided the thing they needed was a grab and go burn kit so that they could get to their customer and minimize the damage a burn would do.
So we designed a Velcro out burn kit that was an integral part of their first aid kit. The burn kit came in its own bag and could be left in the kit, vectored to an auxiliary location or simply placed in close proximity to where burns might occur.
This innovation has been so useful that we thought why not make it available to the rest of the world.
With one slight modification (we added two grommets in the back so you can hang it from a hook or nail) we launched the new kit in early August, 2007 .
This great little grab and go burn kit contains (6) 1/8 oz. Burn Free pain relieving burn gel, (4) 4″ X 4″ Sterile Burn Free burn dressings, (2) 8″ X 8″ Sterile Burn Free burn dressings and (1) each of the 2″ and 3″ Medi-Rip Cohesive Bandages.
We sell a lot of first aid kits here at First Aid Supplies Online. Businesses and institutions buy kits for their employees and some times for their customers or clintel. We get orders from soccer clubs, scout troops, moms and dads. Reaching out via the internet we are doing business with such a wide spectrum of of organizations and individuals that it is rather humbling.
So let me say thanks everybody we truly appreciate you!
Having said that, when you put a lot of first aid kits and supplies out the door one dosen’t dwell on how the products you sell are going to be used but from time to time we get some feedback that is truly amazing.
Point in fact, our Lifesaver First Aid Kit. When we designed this kit, we designed it with a small business, individual or family in mind. We got a terrific letter from a customer who used it in an unexpected way so I thought we’d share her email to us with you. It goes like this:
” Last year I ordered a First Responder Kit for my daughter as her nursing graduation gift. She informed me a couple of weeks ago that she used about 2/3 of her kit when she stopped at an automobile wreck on her way to work. The patrolmen kept her at the scene until ambulances arrived. She then went on to work where she helped take care of the same people in the ER where she normally works.
My question is: Can I use the 10% off coupon for a gift certificate for her for Christmas?
She definitely needs to restock her kit.
Karen in Flagstaff, AZ
P. S. I haven’t had to use my kit yet, but it goes everywhere with me.”
Although Karen refers to the Lifesaver as a First Responder (which it is) we decided to include this picture for clarification. Get your Lifesaver here:

BE PREPARED FOR PLAYGROUND OWIES THIS BACK-TO-SCHOOL SEASON WITH YOUR VERY OWN FIRST AID KIT FOR KIDS
Parents Are Adding The medibag™ As A “Must-Have” On School Supply Lists This Year
Phoenix, AZ (July 10, 2006) — As you and your child peruse the school supply aisles at your favorite store looking for the perfect lunch box or color-coordinated notebook set; remember, there’s one important item that you’ll only find online and through specialty retailers this back-to-school season — the medibag, a state-of-the art medical first-aid kit just for kids.
To make the life of “resident medics” even easier, parents can shop at home by visiting www.me4kidz.com to add this must-have item to their back-to-school arsenal. With the medibag, moms and dads will be well armed with all of the essentials to set up their own in-home or on-the-go triage unit to treat kids who come home with everything including scrapes, stings, boo-boos and owies from the playground or sport practice.
When school starts, it also signifies the beginning of increased opportunities for playground-related injuries. This is of particular concern for parents of younger children. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, each year in the United States, emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related injuries. Children ages 5 to 9 have higher rates of emergency room visits for playground injuries than any other age group – and most of these injuries occur at school.
Many minor playground injuries can be taken care of at home by Dr. Mom, along with a top-notch first aid kit. However, many parents couldn’t find anything suitable on the market targeted for the most common childhood injuries. Today, thanks to the me4kidz company’s medibag, parents now
have what they need to mend their children in one convenient kit – just by ordering it online.
Along with the usual accoutrements, like bandages and antibiotic ointment, the medibag includes some very useful items for family accidents. Based on extensive research and family focus groups here are some of the items that make this first-aid kit an essential tool to add to your back-to-school supply list this year:
A quick-action first-aid flip chart
A CD that tells parents how to safety-proof a home
Eye-wash to remove debris
Insect sting relief pads
Kids QR™ (an item that instantly stops excessive bleeding)
Latex-free, powder-free blue exam gloves (instead of medical white)
A bright yellow babysitter pad for crucial family information (and filling it out for date night means you’ll also remember to show the sitter where your medibag is!)
Each kit has specialized, patented compartment systems and looks like a kid-friendly doctor’s bag. Through its bright colors and mom-developed design, the medibag removes the intimidation from first-aid and, thereby, helps to protect the entire family.
In addition to being rewarded by the knowledge that they’ve helped keep families safe, me4kidz has received other, more tangible accolades. This month, it won the Baby Atlas 2006 Editor’s Choice Award. It has won the Hot Product 2006 Award from iParenting and was selected as a 2006 “Cool Stuff” winner by Preemie Magazine. The product is being sold by specialty retailers and catalogs across the United States, Canada, Barbados and the Cayman Islands.
Here it is spring time and many of us are preparing to work and play outdoors. As the season changes, our first aid focus changes as well and so an appropriate time arrive to discuss some of our seasonal first aid favorites!
Starting out with a brand new product from the makers of the Sam Splint, Blist-O-Ban is a break through product for the treatment of blisters. This product is excellent before or after the blister damage is done.
So for all you hikers with new boots to break in or marathon runners with a nagging friction problem on your foot, here is the product for you. Please let me add that you don’t have to be an athlete to really appreciate this fabulous new product. Anyone with an annoying blister or blister starter will love Blist-O-Ban.
I had a call from a customer that was going to have his Mom try them on her bed sores. If we get some feedback on that application we’ll make sure and post it.
Of course you can get this fine product at our website here: Blisto-O-Ban
The next product we want to bring to you attention for spring is Burn Free Burn Gel. Burn Free is one of the most popular burn treatment products we’ve ever sold and for good reason. Nothing works as well.
Burn Free is a hydrogel, which means it acts as a very effecient heat exchange and literally pulls the heat out of a burn easing the pain and reducing the damage a burn can do. Although hydrogels have been around for more that twenty years, many people still don’t realize what a versatile product Burn Free is, especially in the Spring Time Context.
Because the weather improves we tend to want to go out and enjoy being out doors and although it will be some time before we start getting sunburned up North, spring time sun burns are not unheard of. Yeah, Burn Free Burn Gel is great on sunburns! We recommend you stock up now so you will be ready when it happens.
Of course you can get it at our website here: Get Burn Free Burn Gel The Sawyer Extractor Sting Thing
We were informed recently that one of our significant vendors has been acquired in a corporate purchase. First Aid Direct which has been our primary Industrial First Aid Supplies since 1996 is no more. We have heard from the corporate purchaser and the news is not good. Basically, the First Aid Direct brand is going away.
We were notified by an official of the purchasing corporation that First Aid Direct products would only be available during a “transition period” and beyond that we would have access to one of their other brands in replacement.
In other words our way or the highway.
We looked at their other brands and decided to go in a different direction. Our focus has always been to maximize value for our customers. So we have begun to replace the First Aid Direct brand with Swift First Aid products. Our decision to go with Swift is based on our long term relationship with the company and our knowledge of their quality and service. Most importantly, we can assure our long term customers that they will continue to receive the quality and value that the have always enjoyed at First Aid Supplies Online.com
Over the next 90 days you will begin to see the product changes at the website. We have kept the replacement products as close to the industry standards and the out going brand as possible.
You will see some product numbers and descriptions change, but you may rely on our quality guarantee.
