COVID-19 has made talking about safety more important than ever. Did you know that since 2015, workplace injuries have been going up in the Independent Living and Assisted Living sectors? Right now, Independent Living and Assisted Living injury rates are higher than that of home and community care.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Help us help you. For the past six years, SafeCare BC has worked with the long-term care and home and community care sectors to bring injury rates down. Tell us what’s important to you – what health and safety resources you need, how COVID-19 has impacted your work, and how you want to access safety resources. With proposed changes to the Workers Compensation Act under discussion and COVID-19 an ongoing challenge, there’s no better time to talk about safety.
Complete this brief, 15-minute survey to share your thoughts: www.safecarebc.ca/surveyforyou . The survey will be open until August 14, and you’ll have a chance to win a $50 gift card.
Please also share the survey with your coworkers (we’ve attached a handy poster that you can post). The more input we get, the better we’ll be able to understand the issues – and the more successful we’ll be in bringing injury rates down. Your safety matters – have a say.
