|Section: 7(1)||Date Revised:|
Are we exempt from having to designate an employee to administer first aid if we have a nurse or doctor on staff?
No, nurses and doctors have to meet the same requirements as other first aid providers. However, it is possible to apply to the chief compliance officer for a deviation if it can be demonstrated that the nurse or doctor:
7(1) An employer shall designate one or more employees to act as first aid providers and maintain a record of the names of each employee who is designated as a first aid provider.
