Regulatory requirements for first aid training

Having employees trained in first aid in your workplace is a legal requirement across Canada. Most workplaces fall under provincial workplace health and safety legislation while companies federally incorporated fall under the Canada Labour Code.
 
Please click here to access links to local legislation for more information. While legislation outlines the minimum requirements, when deciding on the number of employees to be trained always take into consideration employee availability as dictated by factors such as shifts, vacation time, sick leave, or meetings off-site. As a general rule, for every one person mandated by regulations, a company should train three. While having 100 per cent of employees trained in first aid is ideal, a good corporate objective is to achieve and maintain 25 per cent coverage.
