Research Facts
First Aid is a broad term that refers to aid or treatment of the sick or injured before full medical treatment can be received; First Aid kits are designed to provide easy access to a variety of medical materials for fast treatment of minor wounds or to stabilize more serious conditions before additional treatment.
Fleck Bros. LTD. was a British Columbia based company that produced a wide range of equipment for industrial use; first aid supplies were a major part of their business and were designed specifically for use in the work place.
The W. C. B. printed on the inventory sheet of this kit indicates that it was produced in conjunction with the standards of the Workers Compensation Board, which is a government agency established in 1917 as part of the Workmen’s Compensation Act in British Columbia to regulate safety in the workplace; the agency still exists as of 2019, known since 2005 as WorkSafeBC.
