Vancouver, Canada, 24th November 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, Metro Safety has played a pivotal role in helping Vancouver’s workforce meet the regulatory requirements for first aid training in various industries. The training institution provides a library of training for all skill levels across different courses. Their most popular courses include:
- Occupational First Aid Level 1 (OFA 1)

- Occupational First Aid Level 3 (OFA 3) (including OFA 3 evening courses)
- Emergency First Aid (EFA) – Canadian Red Cross (with CPR-C)
- Standard First Aid (SFA) – Canadian Red Cross (with CPR-C)
- CPR-C with AED – Canadian Red Cross
Recipients of OFA 1, 2, and 3 will be qualified to work as WorkSafeBC first aid attendants, making their workplace a safer place for everyone and significantly improving morale. In addition to the above courses, Metro Safety also provides renewal courses so that first-aiders can keep their certifications after they have expired. These renewal courses include:
- Occupational First Aid Level 3 Renewal
- CPR/HCP/AED Recertification – Canadian Red Cross
The first aid courses feature great variety and flexibility – combining theoretical and practical sessions that address various learning modalities through simulations, MCQs, activities, videos, and written content, among others.
One of the biggest challenges in Canada’s workplace is not being able to respond to medical emergencies as they arise. A certified first aider could be the difference between life and death. Metro Safety’s higher quality training lowers the risk of a business in terms of work hours lost due to injuries and costly litigation.
Businesses can sign their employees up for first aid courses that cater to their industry and environment specifics.
A major reason why Metro Safety courses are so highly sought-after is because they are taught by skilled professionals. The programs are highly engaging and standardized to maximize positive learning outcomes. First-aid training impacts company culture, employee retention, and even the bottom line.
With Metro Safety, workers learn about first aid training that lasts their entire time. The well-developed courses lower the burden on workers, increase employee retention, and improve the consistency of training without breaking the bank.
Recent statistics from AWCBC found that nearly 935 people died at the workplace in Canada due to severe injuries. This necessitates first aid training and helping workers design an environment that is safer for everyone.
First aid training can make employees more aware of common workplace hazards and best practices for minimizing the risk of injury.
Over the years, Metro Safety’s comprehensive courses have empowered workers with more confidence to act in medical emergencies and minimize injuries. In severe cases, these first aid standards have played an essential role in keeping the victim alive.
