AmeriPride has begun offering a first-aid kit that's designed for vehicle fleets and can be purchased by any company with a fleet, the linen and uniform service provider has announced.

The motorist first aid kit has 70 pieces, including plastic strip bandages, adhesive tape, antiseptic wipes, burn gel packets, cotton top applicators, a first aid guide, a conforming gauze bandage, gauze pads, nitrile gloves, wound pad, triangular bandage, tweezers, triple antibiotic ointment packets, and a thermal blanket.

The kit is compliant with U.S. DOT regulations, according to AmeriPride. The DOT requires businesses to provide some form of first aid in their trucks.

AmeriPride is releasing the kit at the start of the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) Drive Safely Work Week that runs from Oct. 5 to 9. It retails for $14.95.

The kit can be purchased here.

AmeriPride has also begun offering a first-aid service for company workplaces. The company will provide first-aid supplies that meet ANSI and OSHA standards for $9 per week.
