Recent updates: Recommendations for additional PPE and detailed cleaning procedures have been added. Please also note the changes to compression-only CPR.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, occupational first aid attendants (OFAAs) continue to provide treatment to workers as necessary. Because of the possibility of community infection, standard protocols may need to be modified to reduce the potential for transmission.

This information sheet provides additional precautions OFAAs can take to include public health directives such as physical distancing, hand hygiene, and disinfection in their procedures.
