Backgrounder: Occupational first aid regulatory changes

WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors has 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 June 2024 to provide additional details and guidance based on stakeholder feedback.
