Nov. 20: The Department of Labour and Workforce Development is warning companies about telephone sales pitches for high-priced first aid kits. The type of first aid kit required in a workplace depends on the number of employees on the job at the same time. Depending on the type of kit, costs range from about $20 to $100. For a chart on complying with the first aid requirements, see www.gov.ns.ca/lwd/safety.asp.
