First Aid for Small Business

Any organization should have an Occupational Health & Safety Committee.  By law in BC I belive you have to have an organization that has 20 people when you have to intiate one.  But it’s just smart practice to develop on asap.  It could be just as simple as being an agenda item on a monthly meeting.

Here’s what you’ll have  to look forward to when you do a basic course.

Standard Level First Aid

Designed to meet industry, business and government requirements, Standard level first aid is a modular course for those who want to learn more first aid skills.

The Standard level first aid course is built on the same core and elective lessons as the Emergency level course. The course includes core and elective lessons as well as a written exam.
