First Aid

Last updated: April 2019

Prepared by CCOHS

The following are the references to the provincial and federal legislation where you will find information about first aid. Since legislation interpretation varies and enforcement varies by jurisdiction contact your local jurisdiction as listed in Canadian Governmental Occupational Health & Safety Departments (http://www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers/information/govt.html). Although each province provides different guidelines, the following information is usually given:

- locations at which first aid information and notices should be placed

- documentation of first aid records

- requirements for first aid facilities

- required contents in first aid kits

- certification requirements for first aid attendants.

This list is prepared by CCOHS as part of the Canadian enviroOSH Legislation service . This service is a comprehensive and easy to search compilation of the full text of Canadian health, safety and environmental legislation and critical guidelines and codes of practice from all jurisdictions. All the legislation is compiled into one convenient location and is regularly updated with amendments highlighted.

Subscribers to this service and paid learners of the CCOHS e-courses have access to the full text of the legislation listed in this document. To become a subscriber please contact us .
