The Lifesaving Society is recognized through WHSCC in Newfoundland and Labrador as a first aid provider
As of June 1, 2006, amendments to the Newfoundland and Labrador Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, sections 2 (b), (e), and (j), gave the Commission the mandate to establish standards authorizing training providers to deliver first-aid training in the province.
The Commission adopts the federal first-aid standards outlined in the Canada Labour Code Part II, Occupational Health and Safety Regulations Section 16.12 for use in Newfoundland and Labrador. First-aid training providers who demonstrate to the Commission that they meet these standards will be eligible to offer first-aid training to employers in Newfoundland and Labrador.
All first-aid training providers are required to apply to the Commission to be an approved first-aid training provider. This gives employers the opportunity to choose a training provider from the Commission's approved list.
