Right to the Point

The Shortest, Fastest Answer: Choose Standard First Aid and CPR C

In general, to have your bases covered, employees should be certified in Standard First Aid & CPR C. It's the most common required level of First Aid and CPR level for the majority of workplaces. It's a higher level of training than Emergency First Aid.

CPR Level C also trains employees in 2-person CPR - a helpful skill in the event of a real emergency at the workplace.

However if the workplace is a healthcare environment, or if there is an expectation of professional medical care, then Standard First Aid & CPR BLS will be the preferred CPR Certification Level for employees.

Let's Talk Numbers...

How many Employees in a Workplace must be certified and trained in First Aid & CPR?

Workplaces are required to conduct an assessment of their workplace's size and layout. Employers are responsible for ensuring that there are sufficient numbers of first aid trained and CPR certified employees available. The rule of thumb is that a first aid certified person on site should be able to attend to an injured person within two minutes time.

In general, if 5 or less employees are working together in the same area & shift, then 1 must be Emergency First Aid & CPR certified. If 6 or more employees are together at the same time in the workplace, then 1 or more must be Standard First Aid & CPR certified.

Understanding CPR Levels

Which Employee CPR Certification is required?

If employees in the workplace will only come in contact with adults, then CPR A (adult only CPR) is sufficient. However, if the workplace demands are such that employees will interact and come across youths, children, and infants, then CPR C (adult, child, and infant CPR) is required.

If there is a professional expectation of a higher level of care in the workplace, such as the healthcare environment or as an emergency first responder, then the CPR Level required is Basic Life Support CPR, also known as CPR BLS, CPR BCLS, or HCP CPR.
