In today’s Covid-19 world, there is a tremendous cost in human and financial terms of mental health issues in and out of the workplace. Often we aren’t sure how to help co-workers who may be facing mental health challenges. This Mental Health First Aid Course addresses this by training a designated in-house staff in Mental Health First Aid to provide initial support to someone developing or experiencing a mental health issue. If a crisis does arise, a MHFA trained person can take appropriate steps that may help to reduce the harm that can result. This course is developed and managed by Mental Health Commission of Canada and taught by a Canadian Mental Health Association certified MHFA trainer. Offered by the Pacific Safety Center Ltd on July 9 & 10, 2020. Click here for more information.
Training Courses Resume. – Next dates for Fundamentals for Joint Health and Safety Committees: June 29, July 8, 2020
As BC moves into Phase 2 of the Covid-19 situation more and more businesses are either open or planning to reopen. If you need training for your safety committee, we are here for you. We have been revising our training course safety systems and will resume open enrollment (ie: regularly scheduled) courses in our Richmond classroom with our Fundamentals for Joint Health and Safety Committees Course. We will be taking extensive safety measures to protect our clients and staff. We are reducing the size of each course from 16 to 8 people to allow for social distancing. We are doing extensive disinfecting in the training room, washrooms and other areas, have hand sanitizer and face masks available for all, utilizing lexan barriers (where appropriate), and more. Since there are only 8 seats per course we expect them to fill quickly! Want to register? Click here for a registration form and scan and e-mail it.

BC Safety Committee Conference
Nov. 4, 2020,
While all safety training courses, conferences and seminars for the spring of 2020 have been canceled or postponed, we are looking forward to this fall and the BC Safety Committee Conference. Scheduled for November 4 with optional post-conference courses running on November 5, this will be THE safety event of the year. The planning and organization for it have been slowed by the COVID-19 situation but we hope to have more information available in mid May. Watch this space for more details coming soon.
NEW! Mental Health First Aid Course
July 9 & 10, 2020
Have you encountered someone experiencing a mental health crisis? What did you do? Did you feel confused or ill-prepared? With mental health first aid training you would have had the tools to help. What is Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training? MHFA is like regular first aid but rather than treating a physical injury, you treat the person who may be experiencing a mental health problem or in a mental health crisis, you can administer mental health first aid until appropriate professional help is received or until the crisis is resolved.

As BC moves into Phase 2 of the Covid-19 situation more and more businesses are either open or planning to reopen and we are planning on being there for you. We have been revising our training course safety systems and hope to resume open enrollment (ie: regularly scheduled) courses in our Richmond offices, beginning June 24, 2020 with our Fundamentals for Joint Health and Safety Committees Course. We will be taking extensive safety measures to protect our clients and staff. For example we will be reducing the size of each course from 16 to 8 people to allow for social distancing. We will be doing extensive disinfecting in the training room , washroom and other areas, provide hand sanitizer, have face masks available for any and all, utilize lexan barriers (where appropriate), and more. Watch this space for more information.
In the interests of protecting our clients, trainers and our own staff, we are suspending all training courses both scheduled and on-site, for the duration of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We expect most attendees will want to reschedule once gatherings are safe again, but refunds will be available for those who have pre-paid for their training and choose not to reschedule. Please be aware that the recent cancelling of the 2020 Western Conference on Safety and the significant number refunds required for it, is slowing the overall refund process so delays should be anticipated. More information will be posted as the situation progresses.
At 3:45pm today, March 12, 2020, The British Columbia Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry and the Provincial Health Minister Adrian Dix, directed that all gatherings of more than 250 people be canceled. The 2020 Western Conference on Safety is a gathering of over 1100 people. Accordingly, and as directed, the 2020 Western Conference on Safety (including its post conference courses) is now cancelled.
Full refunds will be issued to everyone who has paid a conference delegate registration, or a tradeshow booth, or a sponsorship fee to the Pacific Safety Center Ltd to participate in the 2020 Western Conference on Safety.
More information on this will be posted shortly.
