A place for everything and everything in its place, but when it comes to travelling we always manage to leave something behind. The Safety Department of Ferrovial has drawn up a guide to doing things the right way before, during and after the trip, from how to pack your bags through taking out a travel insurance policy to airport-hotel transfers…

If you took the advice of the last article and have already packed, don’t forget to include a small first aid kit, especially if you are going to a developing country and/or one where proper medication may not be locally available.

What to include in the first aid kit:

The first aid kit should contain basic medication for treatment of common ailments, first aid items and any other special healthcare articles such as hypodermic syringes or needles.

If you need to take a prescribed medicine or other special healthcare article remember to take the signed medical certificate so that you can safely declare that you are using the medicine on doctor’s orders. These are sensitive items and you must take into account that some countries require not only a certificate signed by a doctor but also by the health authorities of the country of origin.

Remember to include:

  • Sterilized dressings
  • Scissors, safety pins, tweezers and earplugs
  • Band aids
  • Adhesive tape
  • Bandages
  • An antiseptic
  • Analgesics
  • Antihistamines
  • Nasal decongestant
  • Sun cream
  • Insect repellent
  • Rehydration salts

Include additional items depending on your destination and individual needs.

  • Water purifiers
  • Fungicidal powder
  • Antibacterial ointment
  • Spare glasses
  • Mosquito nets
  • Other medication in case you come down with gastroenteritis, travel sickness or malaria, and antibiotics.

 

Tell us what else you would add in your first aid kit.
