It not only makes good sense to provide first aid training in the workplace, it’s the law! The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board have regulations related to First Aid requirements know as Regulation 1101.
First Aid is a critical part of a company’s emergency response system and occupational health and safety program. First aid can save lives, proper treatment can prevent an injury from becoming more serious and reduce recovery periods.

First aid training enables you to deal with injuries and medical emergencies at home, work or play, while CPR Training provides you with the skills needed to save a life.
