Location Throughout the Hackspace

The Hackspace has two well stocked first aid kits.


Ground Floor

The ground floor first aid kit is located in the corridor. As you walk in through the front door you should see it on the left.

First Floor

The first floor first aid kit is located to the left of the main door as you look at it from inside the Hackspace.


The first aid kits should be inspected periodically to ensure everything is present and in date. Ideally a quick check of the void seals should be performed every month, and a full inspection quarterly.
