Gain the skills and knowledge to help save a life.
Did you know all businesses covered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act are required to have first aid equipment, facilities and trained personnel in all workplaces? WHSC’s delivery of Red Cross training meets the legislative requirements and is WSIB-approved while offering the latest CPR guidelines and training in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). In addition, requirements for Transport Canada as outlined in the Transport Publication (TP) 13008 E are also met where needed.

  • Respiratory and cardiac arrest
  • Head and spine injuries
  • Bone, muscle and joint injuries
  • Wound care
  • Poisons including opioids
  • As well as airway, medical and environmental emergencies.
