Emergency First Aid and Level 1 Occupational First Aid
Emergency First Aid meets the workplace legislation requirements in most Canadian Provinces outside of British Columbia.
However in BC, WorkSafe may require a Level 1 First Aid certificate instead.
Generally in BC...if you will be performing first aid on your co-workers you need Level 1 First Aid...but if you will be performing first aid as a volunteer or for your clients, you need Emergency or Standard First Aid.
