A priority of the Occupational Health & Safety program is the provision of first aid services for the BCIT community. The purpose of first aid is to provide employees and students with prompt, easily accessible and appropriate treatment.
This Safety Wise BCIT video highlights what to do – and who can help you – if you get hurt, on or off campus.
Injuries on campus
Level 2 Occupational First Aid attendants are available at the five main BCIT campuses. Our security guards are also Level 1 trained and have first aid kits available to them. Our attendants can walk you through the first aid process and any follow up appointments that you might need.
All injuries sustained on BCIT campuses or while working on BCIT business must be reported to first aid. You can easily request first aid, share your location or report a concern through the Safety Wise app.
Steps to take:
- Call First Aid to let first aid know that you require assistance, and then proceed to the first aid location or request that first aid attend to your location
- Let your supervisor/instructor know
- Report your incident, if you are an employee, by completing the online Report of Injury/Illness/Exposure form, in IRIS*. If you are a student, complete the Student Injury Report Form.
- If you’ve called 911, contact security to let them know.
