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.

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.

Employee completes the WorksafeBC Form 6A. Call WorksafeBC to report your injury. 1-888-967-5377.

Principal/Supervisor completes WorksafeBC Incident Investigation Report with injured worker and worker rep. from Joint Health & Safety committee and faxes form 6A and incident/investigation reports to the school district Health, Safety and Wellness Officer (Judy Dueck). Fax: 604.466.6229

Use this form to report incidents involving violence or the threat of violence. If there are any injuries arising out of the incident, also complete the 'Employee Incident/Injury Report' form
