Subject: Re: First Aid kits, etc. in labs


When I was getting up to speed on our lab first aid kits I looked at
the kits in the Lab Safety Supply catalog (Janesville,
WI, 800-356-0783). They list contents of the variously sized
kits. McMaster-Carr also carries first aid kits. If you don't have their
catalog, they also have an online catalog...
