Red Cross Month

March is Red Cross Month and that’s a good reminder that First Aid is as important as any other safety training in the workforce.

Last year, 1 in 68 construction workers were injured on the job. Whether it’s a slip and fall or a heart attack, time is of the essence.

The Canadian government has longstanding legislation that dictates workplace requirements for on-site First Aid responders, kits and/or facilities.

Being prepared and quick EMS response can reduce the severity of an injury by as much as 50%.

A basic First Aid kit and training can make construction a safer industry.
