Harmony First Aid System
The Harmony workplace first aid system aims to help users better manage, maintain and use their first aid consumables (plasters, eyewash, bandages, sterile wipes etc). During the economic decline many companies who had previously utilised external management services found themselves instead needing to place this responsibility more on more upon their internal staff. At the same time the 2008 Corporate Manslaughter Act came into play, making employers liable should anything happen to their staff due to any lack of their health and safety management. The Harmony kit mount uses an external indicator to warn managers when the kit requires attention and inspection whilst the entire user interaction has received an overhaul, intelligently separating consumables into a minor injury dispenser and an emergency box; separating tools, bandages and injury specific items to speed up location and reduce mental workload.
