First Aiders

Please note that as of December 2015, if you are a “Designated First Aider” at your worksite and your job description includes First Aid, you will no longer be covered under the *Emergency Medical Aid Act in Alberta. You should speak with your employer regarding your legal status and protections if you provide first aid to a fellow worker.

*The Emergency Medical Aid Act in Alberta provides legal liability protection for injuries or death alleged to have been caused by the actions or inactions of the first aider.
