Federal Type A,B,C,D First Aid Kits and Supplies
Federal regulations specify minimum requirements that employers must fill in order to ensure worksites have the equipment and supplies needed to provide first aid care in the event of a workplace injury or accident. Regulated by the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (SOR/86-304), required first aid supplies in Canadian workplaces vary depending on the number of employees at the worksite. Each one of our workplace first aid kits is designed to service a specific number of employees and includes all the required first aid supplies to meet or exceed federal first aid kit requirements.
Employers should perform a site-specific hazard assessment to identify potential hazards that employees are exposed to at the place of work in order to fully understand and identify the special needs of the workers. Most employers choose a first aid kit that not only meets federal requirements but one that can properly handle any injuries or illnesses that are most likely to occur. Choose from the following options:
- Type A first aid kit - covers 2 to 5 employees at any one time.
- Type B first aid kit - covers 6 or more employees at any one time where the first aid attendant is required to have at least a basic first aid certificate.
- Type C first aid kit - covers 6 or more employees at any one time where the first aid attendant is required to have at least a standard first aid certificate.
- Type D first aid kit – covers 1 remote worker and 1 to 3 travelling by snowmobile or other small vehicle, other than a truck, van or automobile.
