The Occupational Safety and Health Regulation requires that those responsible for workplaces must ensure that at least one of every 150 employees is trained in first aid. The Occupational Safety & Health Council is one of the organisations approved by the Commissioner for Labour to provide training and issue certificates of competency in first aid. The course, which is jointly organised by the Auxiliary Medical Services, goes through the syllabus of basic first aid with the emphasis on practical approaches to handling casualties.
