Every workplace in the province of Ontario is required to have at least 1 person on every shift trained in First Aid and CPR. That worker is also to be provided with a first aid kit and personal protective equipment. The level of training and required kit contents are based on the number of employees in the workplace, potential hazards and the type of workplace. The requirements are outlined in the Workplace Safety Insurance Act, and WSIB regulation 1101 contains the details of the regulatory requirements for First Aid in Ontario workplaces.
