Suitability for untrained users
Our expert panel assesses how easy it is for someone without first aid training to locate and use the correct equipment to treat common injuries.
Essential contents score
We look through the contents of each kit to see which essential items are included. Our list of essential items is sourced from the 'Portable first aid kits for use by consumers' standard (AS 2675) and is listed in our first aid kits buying guide. Though the standard has lapsed and is no longer enforced, its inventory list is still a relevant guide for our test. Most kits include one or more additional items that may be useful but are non-essential for a home kit. These don't contribute to the essential contents score.
