Dear Manish

A lot has been written on this topic at this site. I am sure you will spend some time in searching the same.

for your information as a guideline to follow certain points are mentioned below.

First Aid Kits or boxes to be used by a first aider or a non medical professional should not contain any medicine into it. The main reason for so is to avoid complications arising out of use of medicines.

It is impossible for a layman or a first aider to know about adverse effects of the medicines hence as a protocol it applies in every part of life. Though people takes medicines on their own by knowing from their peers or based on their past ailments but First Aid Box is a legal product inside a factory or organization and should not have medicines into it.

If a doctor is available in the factory, he can customise a medicines cup board for him and for the Industrial Nurse who can dispense the medicines at the directions of doctor. medicine cup boards are not comparable to first aid box.

If you have any need with regard to first aid kits or First aid boxes, we offer the first aid kits manufactured as per the guidelines of factory inspectorate. Our kits are best available products in India with regard to cost and quality.

We have a very wide range of world class first aid kits like Industrial first Aid Kits/ Boxes, Office First Aid Kits, School first aid kits, Sports first aid kits, marine First Aid Kits, Hoe first aid kits etc.
