The Importance of Occupational First Aid Level 3 in Remote Workplaces

Working in a remote location can be a challenging experience, especially when it comes to providing medical aid in emergency situations. In such situations, immediate first aid can mean the difference between life and death. It’s crucial to have trained personnel on-site who can provide advanced life-saving first aid. That’s where the Occupational First Aid Level 3 (OFA 3) course comes in.

At Mainland Safety Training Company, we offer a comprehensive 70-hour program that is designed to provide participants with advanced life-saving first aid skills. The course is recognized by WorkSafe BC, and successful candidates will receive the Occupational First Aid Level 3 certificate.
