SafeCare BC Membership

SafeCare BC is the non-profit workplace health and safety association for the continuing care sector. Our goal is to create safe, healthy workplaces for long-term and community health workers. We do this through education, training, resources, and policy work.

How does SafeCare BC membership work?

  • Automatic: You're automatically a member if your WorkSafeBC classification number is 766011 (long-term care) or 766006 (home and community support).
  • Opt-in: If you’re an eligible education or service provider, you can apply to become a member — see below for more information.

Once an organization is a SafeCare BC member, all the people within that organization also become members and have access to benefits.

Who’s eligible for opt-in membership?

Education providers who:

  • Offer education or training, such as nursing or administration, that prepares people to work in the continuing care sector.
  • If you offer a health care aide training program, it must be fully recognized by the BC Care Aide & Community Health Worker Registry.

Continuing care sector service providers who:

  • Provide standard services in the continuing care sector, such as catering or housekeeping, or
  • Provide special services in the continuing care sector, such as assisted living or specialized community support living, but whose organization does NOT have the WorkSafeBC classification number 766011 or 766006.

In addition to the above, education and service providers must also . . .

  • Operate in British Columbia;
  • Be registered with WorkSafeBC for at least one year;
  • Be in good standing with WorkSafeBC; and
  • NOT be a commercial supplier.
