Industrial Safety International (ISI)

Standard First Aid Training

(Internationally Recognized)

Who Should Take It

Under the current Occupational Health and Safety Code of Alberta, employers are required to have first aiders and first aid supplies based on their hazard classification as a worksite, the amount of employees working per shift, and their proximity to a health care facility.

This course is to support the legislative requirements of industry for first aid. Any employee would benefit from first aid training both in the workplace as well as outside the workplace. It has been noted that a majority of first aid treatment provided by first aiders has in fact not been work related.

Courses Benefits

• Upon successful completion of this program, the trainee will be able to apply the concepts and techniques learned in providing first aid assistance to an injured person.
