In keeping with the new BC Public Health Orders, as of August 24, 2021 face masks are now mandatory in our in-person open enrollment training courses. In addition to the provincial face mask requirements, our open enrollment courses continue to limit class size to 50% of normal, have individual desks or tables with hand sanitizer for each participant, have HEPA air purifiers in room, regularly clean and disinfect high touch areas and follow other Covid-19 prevention best practices.

BC Reintroduces Mandatory Mask Requirements

By Pacific Safety Center, Safety Committee Conference, Uncategorized, Western Conference on Safety

As of this morning, Tuesday August 24, 2021 Dr. Bonnie Henry, Public Health Officer for BC, has reintroduced mandatory mask policies for all public indoor places effective tomorrow, Wednesday August 24, 2021. While the actual detailed Public Health Order has yet to be published we anticipate that this will require that masks be worn on all Pacific Safety Center Ltd in-person open enrollment courses. We will be updating our course policies and rules to reflect both the new Public Health Order (PHO) and industry best practices as soon as the PHO is released.
