Federal and Provincial regulations specify minimum requirements that employers meet in order to ensure worksites have the equipment and supplies needed to provide first aid care in the event of a workplace illness or injury.
In order to properly fill these requirements, employers should perform a site-specific hazard assessment to identify the potential hazards that employees are exposed to on the job. This hazard assessment will identify the individual needs of the workers in order to choose a first aid kit that not only meets provincial requirements, but one that can properly handle the most likely problems to occur.
Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations specify that the employer shall:
- inspect every first aid station regularly (at least monthly), and
- ensure that contents are maintained in a clean, dry and serviceable condition.
