Proposed Changes Coming to NS First Aid Regulations: Employer input needed.


Recent changes to CSA first aid standards may change the First Aid Regulations in Nova Scotia and employers are being asked for feedback. The CSA standard is new and being proposed to all Canadian jurisdictions as a national standard. Two examples include the CSA standard will increase the number of first aid kits a workplace is required to have and will establish training requirements. These changes are being considered for implementation in the fall of 2019!

Nova Scotia employers have expressed a continuing interest to provide feedback on proposed OHS regulations and OEA NS Society will be hosting the first of a number of sessions that Labour and Advanced Education (LAE) will be holding across the province to get your input!

If you are unable to attend in person or want to provide more comments stay tuned to LAE webpage for an online portal which will allow you to be a part of the conversation by providing your comments:
