Occupational First Aid and Transport Certification (Level 1)
Learn the essentials of camp and street smarts, beginning with First Aid
A basic, hands-on first aid course including OFA 1 attendant certification and Transportation Endorsement
The WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level 1 course is designed to teach you how to respond to the most common and most life-threatening workplace first aid emergencies, including CPR, bleeding, shock, and sudden medical emergencies. Occupational First Aid Level 1 (OFA 1) is an 8 hour course that prepares workers to be first aid attendants in relatively low risk environments where a hospital is close by. This course is designed by WorksafeBC and focuses specifically on caring for injured coworkers. Participants learn basic first aid skills that are essential for handling life threatening emergencies, as well as handling more common minor injuries that can happen in the workplace, home, or daycare.
Our two-day 3 Mothers Medicine First Aid program includes The WorkSafeBC Transportation Endorsement which is an additional 8 hours of training focusing specifically on the transport of injured workers to medical aid. This program includes patient packaging for transport, supine and lateral positioning for trauma, 3/4 prone drainage and position of comfort, and patient assessment of critical airway, breathing and circulatory intervention with C-Spine management. WorkSafeBC has authorized Alert First-Aid to teach the Occupational First Aid Level 1 program, and at the end of the course, successful candidates will be recognized by WorkSafeBC as Occupational First Aid Level 1 attendants.
Full details are found on the Alert First Aid website.
