Third SafeCare BC satellite training centre opens in Nanaimo

September 4, 2019
We are pleased to announce opening a third SafeCare BC Satellite Training Centre, the second on Vancouver Island, at Nanaimo’s Eden Gardens.

We are pleased to announce opening a third SafeCare BC Satellite Training Centre, the second on Vancouver Island, at Nanaimo’s Eden Gardens. This partnership agreement with Eden Gardens will increase access and expand health and safety training capacity for continuing care workers on the central Island.

“We are very excited to partner with member sites across the province so that more training can be delivered locally,” says Jen Lyle, CEO of SafeCare BC. “We know that health and safety education and training is a key aspect in helping reduce the number of workplace injuries, which in turn will positively impact staffing shortages.”

Continuing care workers in long-term care, home care and community health support have some of the highest injury rates compared to all occupations in BC. Aside from its training centre in Burnaby, SafeCare BC has partnered with organizations in Parksville and Abbotsford to open satellite training centres.

“We are excited to host the Island’s second SafeCare BC Satellite Training Centre. This will allow us to empower our staff and others in the region with the knowledge and most current practices to create a safe environment for everyone,” says Erin Beaudoin, Chief Motivator/Executive Director of Eden Gardens. “Not only are we creating a better workplace for our staff, but we’re also able to provide better care for our residents.”
