Regulation First Aid Kits in Canada
All Canadian companies
are required by law to have a Regulation First Aid Kit, including the self-employed. Large companies, those in isolated areas or engaging in high-hazard work will have additional requirements for First Aid Supplies and Equipment; company and fleet vehicles also require a Vehicle First Aid Kit. The applicable regulations are summarized on our pages for your convenience, organized by jurisdiction: Federal or Provincial.
Why do you need a First Aid Kit?
You are responsible for the safety of your employees, and should they be injured on the job you must provide emergency care. You may be required to train a Safety Officer, maintain a First Aid Room, and have equipment to transport an injured employee to the Hospital. If you are operating in an isolated area, you may be required to treat more serious injuries on-site. For Service Industries, regulations generally cover only your employees – total number per work shift; we recommend including your customers when you determine which Regulation Kit you should buy. Canadian Safety Supplies also sells Refill Kits to ensure that your existing First Aid Kit continues to meet the statutory requirements, and that your Supplies are fresh and in date.
