OHS Committee Education in Kelowna
As we move into Phase 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, the BCFED Health & Safety Centre is resuming public in-person classroom training. Over the summer months we have added a number of public courses in regional centres to meet demand of postponed courses. In addition, our fall course schedule has been updated with a priority on essential skills to deal with COVID-19.

As a result of risk assessments done for in-class activities, we will be taking extensive safety measures to protect our clients and staff:

  • Reducing the maximum size of each public course
  • Restructuring group learning activities to allow physical distancing
  • Eliminating the need for the use of shared class materials
  • Checking for pre-entry wellness confirmation from all participants
  • Ensuring host facilities have appropriate no/low touch protocols in place (entrance/exits, washrooms, coffee)
  • Supplying readily available hand sanitizer and other hygiene precautions

WEBINARS

NEW - Developing a COVID-19 Safety Plan  
Thursday, July 9, 2020,  10:00 - 11:30 a.m.  (No cost)
Coronavirus has changed workplaces across BC. We have done well provincially preventing the spread of the virus, and now, workplaces are reopening. To keep workers and the public safe, on May 14, 2020,  our Provincial Health Officer issued a public health order requiring all workplaces to have and to post a COVID-19 Safety Plan. WorkSafeBC will be conducting workplace inspections and during that inspection, they may ask to see your COVID-19 Safety Plan. WorkSafeBC has produced resource documents to help employers and workers  understand what is required in these plans.  This webinar will provide guidance to employers, supervisors, joint committee members, and workers to understand what is required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan.
