We have a wide selection of Health and Safety Signs in stock, ensuring Full Compliance with the HSE and other Risk Assessment related safety issues. We have a wide selection of First Aid Products in stock, ensuring Full Compliance with the HSE and other Risk Assessment related safety issues. We have a wide selection of Evacuation Equipment in stock, ensuring Full Compliance with the HSE and other Risk Assessment related safety issues. We sell a variety of first aid signs including a first aid sign with a first aid symbol, first aid box sign, first aid room sign and first aid for this department sign. All first aid signs are designed on a green background as this denotes a safe condition sign, which conforms with British Standard (BS5499), which is in line with the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulation 1996 and is about maintaining a safe environment.
As a minimum, a low-risk workplace such as a small office, should have a first aid box and a person appointed to take charge of first aid arrangements such as calling the emergency services if necessary.
Employers must provide information about first aid arrangements to their employees and displaying first aid signs helps in this process.
This first aid sign would normally be positioned near to where the first aid facilities are kept for e.g. This is a first aid sign that would be used to label a box which the first aid facilities are housed in or it also can be positioned near the box for e.g. This first aid sign would normally be positioned on a door to a specific room set aside to administer first aid, whether it be to the general public or employees. This first aid sign would normally be positioned on a door, wall or noticeboard where it is clearly visible as the point of the sign is to inform people of where the departmental first aider or first aid facilities can be found.
The white space on the first aid sign enables a person to write in what they want to meet their own environmental needs using a dry eraser marker as this can easily be wiped off with a dry kitchen towel. If the name of the first aider or places where the first aider or the first aid facilities can be found are permanent then either pre-printed labels can be printed or black vinyl lettering can be applied to the blank spaces. The first aid sign with the first aid symbol is available in two different sizes and the size of the sign should be considered in comparison to the size of the room or area where the first aid signs will be displayed as they need to be clearly visible. For larger first aid signs we would definitely recommend 1mm rigid pvc as these are more visual and look more professional and it can be tricky to apply large self-adhesive signs so that they sit straight on the surface.

I suffer from a condition called Hydradenitis Supparativa, which basically means I get very painful absesses on various parts of my body.
My usual ones can't be brought over the counter and the chemist wouldn't give any without a prescription. Mepore comes in various sizes : 6cm x 7cm, 7cm x 8cm, 9cm x 10cm, 9cm x 15cm, 9cm x 20cm, 9 cm x 25cm, 9cm x 35cm.
Mepore is a self adhesive wound dressing which has an absorbent pad that you put directly over the wound.
I have also noticed they are not very absorbent and my wounds leak through them very quickly, meaning that I need to change my dressings often, which doesn't help my wounds heal. There are times in life at which standard Elastoplasts simply aren't big, resistant, absorbent, or protective enough. I unfortunately suffer from eczema, which is a skin condition which can be itchy, sore and the affected skin becomes inflamed and red.

The standard first aid symbol for first aid is a white cross and this is standardised throughout EU member states to ensure first aid signs provide the same message wherever witnessed.
Workplaces where there are more significant health and safety risks are more likely to need a trained first-aider. However, while I was pregnant I did not suffer from my condition at all and so hadn't noticed that I only had a couple of dressings left so had not ordered more. These are just some sizes but I think you can get others, although these are all my internet search showed.
However I have found that they do not stay in place as well as other dressings I have tried.
I'll admit that at times my wounds leak so much any dressing would be hard pressed not to leak, but mepore leaks through with even the smallest wounds. This is not a problem I have found with as my other dressings so there is something in mepore which irritates my skin.
I've ran headfirst into a good many such times, and have a history of resorting to sticking on tissue paper with microporous tape.


Essentially it's not something you want to buy because if you are getting it then it means there's something wrong with you that won't be covered by a conventional plaster!I don't know what's wrong with me and neither does the doctor at the moment, but essentially my forearm is infected in a large blistered and swollen circle that looks like a burn gone into overdrive (haven't burnt myself). I had used them in the past and knew they were fine for a small wound, but these wounds were bigger than my usual and I wasn't sure mepore would cope. They tend to start peeling at corners at the smallest movement, and usually when I wear them to bed they are hanging off in the morning. Needless to say, when I arrived at the hospital, the nurses didn't think much of my dressing skills. At the moment this involves applying an antibiotic cream twice a day and covering it each time with Mepore.So what is Mepore? There are different sizes available, eg small 7x8cm ones for small cuts and grazes or larger 10x11cm ones for larger skin lesions eg surgical wounds. The dressings have a plasticy backing which you peel off to reveal the adhesive part to stick the dressings to your skin, ensuring the absorbent pad is directly over the wound. On closer inspection, they turned out to be large, soft sticking plasters.=The Product=Mepores come in varying sizes, from 7 by 8 centimetres to 9 by 35. I used them to wrap around my toes for about a week, the remaining one i still have is in my bathroom somewhere. They come in little paper and plastic packets, sealed so as to keep the dressing sterile until used.
It's white in colour - the middle section is padded (to cover the wound) and it has a wide, sticky outedging that adheres to your skin.
Generally speaking my experience with these was positive, they are better than your average plasters and they do provide better comfort, grip and padding.
The box is cardboard so recycable and inside there are the dressings, which are individually wrapped in a thick paper type material which is white and blue.
The plasters themselves are made of white viscose, and full of little pores, so as to absorb body fluids.
On the back there is a diagram showing you how to use the dressings (a step by step guide) which I found a little silly as it's not a hard task to stick what is essentially a large plaster onto my skin. In the centre, there's an absorbent pad, similar to those in standard Elastoplasts - the principal difference being that, as the adhesive is quite gentle and the whole dressing is absorbent, it doesn't matter too much if the borders cover the wound, too.
Each pad is contained in a sterile, peel back packaging similar to that of a conventional plaster. There is also a use by date, which is one year from last month (the month that I purchased the dressings).The paper type wrapper is easy to open and I am then greeted with a small square plaster which is made of a soft white cotton type material with two pieces of thin paper stuck to the back.
The corners are rounded, so as to seal better to the contours of the skin around the wound.=Use=To take a Mepore out of its packet, pull the tabs on the packet - although I've been known to become so frustrated with this sometimes fiddly process that I simply rip the end off!
Once into this the pad is covered on one side by two paper like strips that peel back to reveal the sticky surface.How much do they cost?That all depends on how you buy them - I've seen them for as little as 35p each (on the size I'm using) online, but you'll pay more at a pharmacy. You can get them cheaper online, or as i did, just got them for free when my doctor handed them to me. Once the paper is peeled off the sticky back is ready to be stuck down onto my skin with the padded part going onto the inflamed area of skin.
Be warned, though, that this can damage or ruck up the plaster inside (although I've found them impossible to tear), so I wouldn't recommend it unless you're in a hurry.
I paid 54p each in a local shop - I would buy online, but I don't know how long I'm going to need these for so I don't really want to bulk order just yet!Do they work?I find these pads stick to the skin incredibly well - much better than any plaster I've ever used. I didn't need a prescription, he just gave me the box in his office, although you can get these under prescription as i found out, so two ways to get them from your doctor but bear in mind the prescription boxes are tiny and you pay a lot more for the prescription than the value of the product itself. I always make sure none of the sticky bit makes contact with the sore skin as it could potentially make it worse.The padded part of the dressing is a decent size and would be ideal for small cuts, grazes, insect bites etc but it wouldn't be big enough to cover a larger wound.
Remove the plaster, peel off its Elastoplast-style backing, and smooth it over the affected skin, centring the pad in the middle on the middle of the wound. It's not like they're drugs or anything so i'm sure they can prescribe them to you quite easily. It's a sqaure shape and so it covers the sore bit of skin evenly meaning it doesn't leave any of the sore skin exposed.
If the Mepore becomes old and scrabby before the wound is healed, it can be replaced as needed.
The pads themselves do seem to have a fair absorbency but I can't say conclusively as I'm not bleeding, my arms is just constantly and slowly weeping - I can see through the pad where the fluid has seeped into it, but it hasn't come through the other side so my clothes are unaffected.
In supermarkets they aren't common and instead own brand or the main company brand ones are displayed on the shelf, but do keep an eye out for them. Due to the gentle adhesive, there isn't the slightest pain in removal.=Notes=One disadvantage to the Mepore's incredible absorbency is that it absorbs not only fluids from a wound, but every liquid that touches it. Another plus is that the side of the pad which is in contact with your skin doesn't stick to the wound and cause more damage.Would I recommend them?The answer has got to be yes - ok they're not cheap when you've got to use several a day, but they do a very good job.


This means that, with a Mepore on your wrist or hand, it can be difficult to wash your hands without it getting waterlogged, too heavy to stick, and falling off! Before my would was sticking to my clothes and vice versa getting jumper fluff stuck to it. The packaging covers the whole plaster and the overlapping tab is more than big enough to get your thumb and finger together on, and pull it off.
They're sticky enough to stick down onto my skin however the adhesive isn't very strong, meaning it usually comes off within 5 minutes unless I stay deadly still. The rounded corners also have a tendency to peel after about ten hours of being applied, although, to be frank, ten hours is too long for the same dressing to be left on a wound. The paper is not thick, nor is it too thin but it has that waxy back on it which curls up when you take it off. I suppose the reason it comes off so quickly is mainly because it's on my wrist though and obviously I move my wrist about alot. If a Mepore is peeling at the corners, it's possibly an indication that it's been on too long to be hygienic!=Conclusion=When a large, absorbent dressing is necessary, a Mepore is ideal.
Mepore allows me to go about my daily life in much the same way as normal and with the added bonus that I don't have to repulse people with my rather nasty looking arm. I'd recommend binning these two waxy strips immediately because if you change the dressings regularly they soon build up in a pile on your desk, as i found out sadly.
Once it has come off the stickiness has gone so it can not be stuck back down again - these dressings can obviously only be used once and should be then binned, this is stated on the box too.The dressings are very thin and have an almost tissue paper like feel to them, they're lightweight though and comfortable to wear.
I'd like to see them as staples in first aid boxes around the country - I've butchered myself with tissue paper and Elastoplasts one time too many. Here's to hoping things start clearing up though and I don't have to use it much longer!I'd definately recommend these if you have an wounds that a normal plaster won't cover, or if you find that regular plasters keep falling off. This is the only packaging though before you actually get to your plaster which is very helpful because supermarket ones are individually wrapped in plastic sheeting AND have that waxy paper on the back and it's just not needed, if anything its pointlessly wasteful and creates unneeded frustration for the end consumer.
I decided to buy some cheap bandage to wrap round my wrist at night to keep the dressing in place and it works a treat.
They're not without their failings, but their only failings are inevitable trade-offs with their advantages. I'm not being funny but if i've cut myself and need a dressing quick i don't want to be fumbling around aimlessly trying to get some sealed-tight plastic off.
I apply the cream onto my wrist at night, apply the dressing and then wrap the bandage around it to keep it in place.
In terms of gratitude, in terms of how much red stuff I'd have lost were it not for Molnlycke's kind invention, I give Mepores a hard-earned four out of five. When I take the bandage off in the morning it hasn't soaked up the cream and it's kept my wrist protected and clean.
These dressings are very sticky indeed, they peel off the skin with some discomfort and if like me you have hair on your toes, then this will be a somewhat painful ordeal for you.
The dressing is easy to take off and doesn't pull any hair out of my skin like alot of adhesive dressings can do.I overall would not reccomend these dressings, as they're very 'cheap' feeling - they're thin with a strange toilet tissue type feel to them.
If you want a dressing that sticks and is reliable to the point where you know it's not coming off without a fight then this is for you. The adhesive is too low so although they stick onto my skin easily, they come off within 5 minutes unless I am very still or if I have a bandage wrapped round it to keep it in place. If you would rather have a dressing that comes off without pain, but equally doesn't stick too well, then these are not for you.
I didn't feel the dressings at all, they were quite thick, they were cushioning against my infected toe, they weren't abrasive or itchy and i even wore them in bed, which was a good idea. They fabric is not easily torn, it is not wafer thin, and does a good job of absorbing the blood, pus, diseases, water, bacteria, sweat etc that may occur wherever you stick it. When the fabric fills up it doesn't just start dripping around the sides it seems to hold the gunk in place and because the seal around the edge of the fabric is quite tight, it doesn't seep out. My infection was oozing pus and blood quite frequently while i was still taking antibiotics but these did absorb them well and they did not need changing more than once per day. I changed my dressings every morning, and that was after spending quite a long time in my shoes, sweating into them and rubbing them off slowly with every footstep. Yes they do loose grip and yes if you wash them they will eventually come off but actually for dressings this size, they took quite a beating, and i even wore them to bed. I am very pleased with my experience and can only recommend these to you, because there are some minor flaws like the price and (depending on if you think this is bad or good) the stickiness of the dressings.
