On the Road to Learn About Our Members

October 24, 2018 | News


Recently, Mavis Gibson, our Director of Workplace Health and Safety Programs, visited eight sites in the Kootenays—Grand Forks, Trail, Nelson, Creston, Cranbrook, Invermere, and Fernie—to learn first hand about their health and safety challenges, education needs and to talk about what SafeCare BC can offer. In addition, she was able to more fully understand and appreciate both the staffing and community demographics.

“After visiting these sites, I was able to get a better sense of their training and education challenges, which includes limited staffing pools, driving distances between communities and sites and the additional difficulties winter weather poses. The insight gained during my trip will help us as we continue to develop new resources and technology to serve our members in distant communities.”

Mavis took along Boo, the SafeCare bear. Here are some of the places Boo visited.
