Paramedic In Industry
This 4-hour workshop is designed to acknowledge the training and knowledge of Licensed Paramedics. It is intended to be a practical application of skills required when practicing as an Occupational First Aid (OFA) Attendant.
The general areas of OFA Attendant practical skills covered in this Workshop include:
- The Priority Action Approach to an injured worker who walks to the FA Room
- Assessing, cleansing, dressing and bandaging minor open wounds
- Completion of the First Aid Record
- Deciding on the need for referral to medical aid
- Providing follow-up care for injured workers
- Treating an Activity-related Soft Tissue Disorder
- Conducting an eye examination
- Treating sprains and strains
Successful completion of this workshop will lead to a certificate that allows the candidate to practice within an OFA Level 3 Attendant’s scope of practice. This certification is only valid when the Paramedic has current Licensure as an Emergency Medical Responder, a Primary Care Paramedic or an Advanced Care Paramedic.
Once you have registered and made payment arrangements, we will provide you, by email, access to the online course material. Prior to the Practical Workshop the candidate must complete the required home study modules from the Occupational First Aid Reference & Training Manual and hand them in at the start of the Practical workshop. Completion of the home study modules is part of the certification process and the workshop will not be considered complete without them.
Please note starting January 01, 2010 the OCCUPATIONAL FIRST AID MEDICAL CERTIFICATE OF FITNESS is no longer required. It has been replaced by the document OCCUPATIONAL FIRST AID STATEMENT OF FITNESS that will be handed out at the course.
