As a manager, you’ll need to ensure your employees have easy access to a first-aid station and designate an employee who is trained to provide first aid.
In the event of an accident, you must:
- Assure medical aid
- Immediately investigate the cause and take preventive action
- Complete an online incident report within 24 hours
Note: If the accident is serious or if anyone is critically injured, contact Environmental Health & Safety immediately at 416-978-4467. Do not remove or disturb any equipment - the scene will need to be secured.
