- In a Bathroom Cabinet
- In a Kitchen Cabinet
- In the Garage

Where to Keep Your Personal First Aid Kit?
The kit should be stored securely in a cool, dry, place. All staff should be informed of its location. The first aid cabinet needs to be installed in an area easily accessible to everyone. The first aid provider should not have to travel through multiple hallways, stairways, or an elevator in order to access the supplies. First Aid Supplies should not be stored in a kitchen or breakroom to avoid contamination with food. A dedicated room for first aid can be an acceptable substitute for a cabinet, but still needs to be easily accessible.
In every case, the first aid kit should be easily accessible. Having to dig through clutter to get to a first aid kit will only prolong treatment and possibly get blood everywhere/on everything in the cabinet. It is also good to make sure everyone knows where the first aid kit is located, what it contains, and how to use the supplies.
