Teachers & Daycare Workers Need First Aid Training

Sadly summer is almost over and many Teachers and Day Care workers will be heading back into the classroom.

While First Aid /CPR & AED training may be the last item on your list to attend to, keep in mind that some of us have a requirement under the law to be current in our First Aid Training.

We have provided a chart below for easy reference.  The corresponding WAC (Washington Administrative Codes) are easily accessed via the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries Website.

WAC 296-800-15005 29 CFR 1910.151(b), WAC 180-20-101(d), WIAA Handbook   Rule 23.2.1 A&B, WAC 388-295-1100(1), WAC 180-79A-380(1), WAC 180-82-340(2), WAC 296-62-40025(d)(v)(C), WAC 296-155-005-(1), WAC 296-155-120
