Notice: June 25, 2010 - No change to First Aid kits or First Aid Regulations
The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission (Commission) has been receiving a number of inquiries recently from employers and stakeholders in the province asking for information on recent changes to the Newfoundland Labrador Occupational Health and Safety First Aid Regulations regarding the marketing of new mandatory first aid kits.

Employers and stakeholders are advised that there have been no changes to the First Aid Regulations or to the Schedules that outline the contents to be included in a First Aid Kit.

The Commission does not endorse any one particular first aid kit or supplier. Any first aid kit that meets the requirements outlined in the Newfoundland Labrador Occupational Health and Safety First Aid Regulations is acceptable in this Province.

Any questions or concerns regarding compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety First Aid Regulations or the required contents of a First Aid Kit, please contact the Department of Government Services, Occupational Health and Safety Branch or the Prevention Services Department of the Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission.
