General guidelines
How the first aid attendant is to respond to a call for first aid
- situations requiring first aid take priority over all other work

Authority of the first aid attendant over the treatment of injured workers and the responsibility of the employer to report injuries to the WCB:
- the first aid attendant will treat injured workers to the best of his/her ability, and ensure that all injuries are promptly reported to the WCB using the proper forms

Who calls for transportation for the injured worker, and the method of transportation and calling:
- if a situation appears serious, anyone can call an ambulance by dialing 9-911 (Calgary, Delta, Edmonton) or 911 (Winnipeg).
- it is better to use a landline rather than a cellphone, so the EMS operator will automatically know the street address.
- the first aid attendant will call for an ambulance if he feels it is appropriate
