2020 BC Safety Committee Conference
Postponed to 2021
New Dates To Be Announced
When gatherings of 50 or more people were banned in March 2020, we were hopeful the Covid-19 situation would be resolved by fall and we would be able to run the BC Safety Committee Conference. Unfortunately the on-going Covid-19 situation combined with the near certainty that groups larger that 50 will still be banned this fall, we have made the hard decision to postpone the 2020 BC Safety Committee Conference. The planning and organization for it will resume once the COVID-19 situation is resolved. We hope to have more information this fall on new dates. Watch this space for more details.
NEW! Mental Health First Aid Course
Next dates: Oct. 28 -29, 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.

August 16, 2020. We are currently experiencing problems sending and receiving emails. Some emails being sent to us are being “bounced back” to the send and marked as “undeliverable”. Our IT people are working on the problem and we hope to have the issue correctly shortly. In the meantime if you have emailed us and not received a reply you may want to call or even (gasp) fax us at 604 233-1942. When our email issues are corrected we will delete this message.
Our Fundamentals for Joint Health & Safety Committees Courses continue to be very popular and with each course limited to 50% of normal capacity to allow for social distancing, they fill up fast.

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.
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.
