Update on COVID-19’s impact on First Aid Requirements:

What First Aid Training is A Workplace Required To Provide?

In Ontario, the required training depends on the number of people working per shift at a workplace:

For workplaces with five or fewer people working on any one shift, at least one must have an emergency first aid certificate. For workplaces with six or more people working on any shift, at least one must have a standard first aid certificate. 

In British Columbia, the required level of training is based on how long it takes to transport an injured person to a hospital and the number of workers per shift.

Most first aid certificates are valid for a maximum of three years.



1) Where should you have first aid stations? How many should you have?

When you have multiple buildings, you should treat each building as an individual workplace. All vehicles used for work purposes, including personal vehicles, should also have a first aid kit and supplies.

2) What are the requirements for workers who work off-site or in small crews?

The first aid requirements for employees working off-site are the same as for employees working on-site

All work crews must have adequate first aid supplies and a trained first aider according to the size of the crew and in B.C. “according to location”.
