Promoting health, safety and wellness

The Employee Health, Safety and Wellness Department mission is to develop and communicate a comprehensive health, safety and wellness program, to meet the needs of employees and identify, evaluate and control occupational and non-occupational risk factors. The department also manages employee incident and injury claims with support through accommodations and return to work programs.

Liaising with administration, worksite health and safety committees, labour groups, the Workers' Compensation Board, and other agencies, Employee Health, Safety and Wellness develops education and training and compliance strategies with the Workers' Compensation Act and Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and related standards.

Safety Program

The occupational health and safety program is designed to provide workers with a safe workplace and to comply with requirements of the Workers’ Compensation Act and WorksafeBC (Workers Compensation Board) Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Regulation.

The School District is committed to providing workers with a safe and healthy workplace by:

  • Promoting a positive attitude towards health and safety in the workplace.
  • Providing sufficient resources to implement the occupational health and safety program.
  • Complying with WorksafeBC legislation, regulations, standards and established safe work procedures.
  • Complying with collective agreement language as it relates to Health & Safety.
  • Promoting and supporting, Worksite Joint Health & Safety committees and the District Health & Safety Committee.

Accident/Incident Reporting Procedures

Employees must report all injuries and accidents, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Significant near miss incidents must also be reported. Employees must also report any situation where the worker experiences any threatening statements or behavior which gives a worker reasonable cause to believe that they are at risk of injury.

All injuries must be reported to the Principal/Supervisor and if necessary the first aid attendant. The employee and Principal/Supervisor will complete the necessary forms and fax them to the District Health, Safety and Wellness Manager within 72 hours of any accident/incident.
