Emergency First Response - Advanced First Aid, CPR, AED & Oxygen

General Course Information

The construction industry is full of hazards everywhere we turn. Traditional first aid courses are designed for low-risk urban settings where risk is minimal i.e. "soccer mom" first aid. In construction though, we know that both the likelihood and severity of illness or injury is greater due to the nature of the activities we engage in,the environment we work in, and the equipment we work with. The situation is then compounded by the extended period of time to definitive care, meaning YOU as the responder must be able to deal with the casualty for longer.

This course is the pre-requisite for our Advanced First Responder Course

This course is accredited by (not a complete list):
  • Canadian Occupational Safety and Health (federal)
  • Federal OSHA Guideline 29 CFR 1910.151(US)
  • Transport Canada
  • United States Coast Guard (USCG) for a merchant mariner license
