A specialised website for catering first aid products has been launched in the UK by a team of professionals with experience in the health and safety industry.
The site — www.cateringfirstaid.co.uk — will offer managers in the catering and hospitality industry a one-stop-shop for procuring first aid kits, blue dressings and plasters, burns kits and signage.
Les Limbrick, who led the launch of the service having worked for several first aid specialists in the past, says that while the hospitality and catering industry are one of the largest users of first aid supplies, there has been no website devoted to their needs until now.
“We work with a number of large and small organisations in the catering and hospitality field to support them in meeting health and safety standards relating to first aid. Our clients’ first aid needs are more specialised yet they didn’t have access to an online service which could support these needs,” he said.
Limbrick said the website is an online extension of the service that is currently offered by the Compliance Group of companies and delivery is normally the next day.
He added: “With other websites, a catering organisation would have to trawl through a maze of product lines to find ones that suited their needs – such as blue plasters or blue tape for example. www.cateringfirstaid.co.uk has changed this with approximately 100 lines for caterers only. In our catering first aid boxes, everything is blue including triangular bandages, dressings, blue plasters and blue tape.”
