Just had a go,

You dont specify in the safety kit whether you want the price range of 1 item or all kit you own, also prices obviously vary depending on what kit. Price categories are very low.

Also is your product different from sam splint? It seems to sound like it does the same kind of thing.

Good luck

You´ve a problem, all the climbing gear a climber carries (ropes, harness, nuts, quickdraws, cams etc) is personal safety gear and legally defined as such (PPE) so virtually everybody is carrying many, many hundreds of pounds of safety gear.
If you mean emergency medical equipment then I carry about a tenners worth like everyone I know.

I realise that this is far more your area than mine, but are you sure about that?

I always understood that, legally, PPE only applied in a working environment.

Hence, arborialists harnesses (and for example, my workboots) are exempt from VAT but my climbing harness isn't.

Most climbing gear must conform to directive 89/686/EEC on Personal Protective Equipment for sale in Europe. You can USE anything you like or even nothing.
