Backgrounder: Occupational first aid regulatory changes

In April 2023, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors approved amendments to Part 3 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, relating to the provision of occupational first aid. These amendments will take effect November 1, 2024, to give employers time to obtain any required first aid training and equipment necessitated by these changes. This backgrounder provides an overview of the changes.

This backgrounder was updated in November 2023 to provide additional details and guidance.
