Workplace First Aid Curriculum Standard

Coming soon: CSA Group is developing a Workplace First Aid Curriculum Standard. The designation number for this Standard is Z1210. The Standard will provide a method for establishing a framework for the consistent, reliable development and delivery of workplace first aid training programs. It will provide guidelines and best practices to assist users with the delivery and evaluation of workplace first aid trainers and provide guidance for competency and training requirements for workplace first aid. This Standard will not address first aid training and requirements for the general public.
