Alcohol-free wound wipes are mentioned in the Approved Code of Practice L74 as being additional items that can help to form part of an inclusive first aid kit.
The individually wrapped moist wound wipes you can buy from First Aid are ideal for cleaning wounds and skin before proceeding with the necessary treatment.
In addition to this, we also stock sterile wipes that are a requirement of any BS8599 first aid kit.
Alcohol free wound wipes are an essential part of every first aid kit. It is vital that wounds are cleaned prior to dressing in order to prevent infection of the wound.
Our selection of individually wrapped wound wipes are all alcohol free with both sterile and non-sterile options available. With sterile wound wipes you can be sure that when used straight from the wrapper the wound is being cleaned with the cleanest possible wipe.
All our sterile wipes confirm to the British Standard for Workplace First Aid Kits which require wound wipes to be a part of the first aid kit and that they must be individually wrapper and sterile.
