Cargo ships are used to carry cargo, goods and bulk materials from one port to another. The process of ferrying these materials may be very long at times. Therefore, emergencies can occur in the seas and oceans, which require medical attention. Carrying an emergency kit in the ship is very beneficial.
The importance of these kits is that they will carry all the requirements needed for various needs in case of an emergency in the large water bodies.

The supplies carried in the first aid kit include; disposable gloves, adhesive bandages, regular strength pain medication, low-grade disinfectants, gauze, cotton swabs, iodine, among other simple medical components. The kit must always be on the ship at all times.
