We are excited to announce Stand Up for Safe Workplaces, a new approach to workplace culture and safety training. Developed in partnership with the BC Federation of Labour (BCFED) Health & Safety Centre, Stand Up for Safe Workplaces is an innovative new program that will help participants understand diversity, equity and inclusion through the lens of workplace safety, including psychological injury prevention. The program’s development is being funded with $2,801,586 from the BC government’s Workplace Innovation Fund, part of the Stronger BC: Future Ready Action Plan announced last year. We expect to complete curriculum development and launch the training program in spring 2025.
