Resident Workplace Safety

As FH employees, residents are required by provincial legislation, WorkSafeBC regulations, and VCH, PHC, PHSA, and FH policies (depending on site of activity at any given time) to be familiar with the relevant policies and resources.

Because LMPS residents work in a wide variety of settings across many facilities, conventional orientation to all procedures at all sites is not practicable.  However, the resources below must be reviewed by residents, with any questions directed to the Program Coordinator. 

VCH Safety Center 604-875-5757 - call about ANY safety-related issue or incident anywhere report and/or receive guidance.

VCH Safe & Healthy Workplace Policy & Resources [intranet] - residents must read this policy be aware of associated resources

Any observed workplace hazards or incidents should be reported to either the most immediate supervisory person and/or to security, with appropriate followup documentation or reporting per above.  Any workplace incident involving the resident themselves should be reported as above, and also immediately to the Program Coordinator.
