Emergency Response First Aid | WSIB Approved Course

In Ontario the WSIB requires all workplaces and work parties to have at least one worker on site at all times who has a valid first aid certificate from a WSIB-approved training organization, regardless of the number of employees. First aid requirements are outlined in Regulation 1101, made under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act (WSIA). This regulation summarizes the type of certificate, as well as the first aid supplies required by an employer based on the number of employees per shift.

Number of Employees per Shift Type of Certificate ​First Aid Kit
