• Eyes - First Aid Poster

Displaying first aid posters on notice boards provides staff and visitors with valuable knowledge that could save a colleague from prolonged severe pain or even the loss of sight. Many people read posters simply out of curiosity and boredom, therefore displaying health and safety notices in areas like waiting rooms, staff rooms, toilets etc. enable these crutial messages to be read. This first aid poster specifically covers the treatment of the eyes. We believe that everyone should have a basic knowledge of first aid.

This poster includes a QR code which can be scanned using a smart phone or tablet, once scanned a video will be played to give further knowledge and clear first aid advice.
