Rescuer Award for man who saved son with CPR Posted September 10, 2016 by Anna Teehan Cliff Colpitts took his first ever first aid class. It was offered through his workplace. Canadian Red Cross training partner Ron Gillatt instructed the class, teaching important first aid skills – including CPR, which Cliff would later use to save his son’s life. After his training, Cliff’s family experienced an emergency that can happen to anyone. Cliff saw his son wasn’t breathing. He went in to what he describes as “auto-pilot”, saying, “once I was sure my son was not breathing...I could hear Ron in the back of my mind, ‘push hard and push fast’”. When Ron heard about Cliff saving his son, he nominated him for a Rescuer Award. This award celebrates non-professional rescuers and off-duty first responders who take action to save a life, prevent further injury, and provide comfort to the injured. Cliff was presented with his award in an emotional ceremony, attended by his whole family. Cliff thanked his work supervisor for providing him with access to the training and to Ron for “not only giving me the skills, but the confidence to administer CPR – that saved my son’s life.” Cliff brought his son up to meet everyone; he simply said “I’m happy to be here to meet everyone.” Every day, Canadians find themselves in need of first aid. While it’s not always this dramatic, having a good knowledge of first aid can empower you to provide comfort or even save a life.

Drug and Alcohol testing-Interesting Read

Workplace Safety After Legalization of Marijuana

November 23, 2017 

By 

Since the federal government set July 1st 2018 as the deadline for provinces and territories to produce regulations for the nationwide legalization of marijuana, business owners across the country are urging governments to provide clarification as to how the use of legalized cannabis will impact the workplace and the rights of both employees and employers.

Anita Huberman, CEO of the Surrey Board of Trade, has requested guidance from both the provincial and federal governments in regards to balancing employee privacy and safety once cannabis is legalized, and has asked that B.C.’s Employment Standards Act be amended to include a province-wide standard on the use of marijuana. Currently, WorkSafeBC only specifies that workers are prohibited from performing on the jobsite if they suffer from any physical or mental impairment that could risk their safety or the safety of others, and that employers can prohibit employees from entering the workplace if they are under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or dangerous substances.

“In every province, in every territory, we want to make sure this is done right,” Huberman said, “even if it takes longer than the amount of time allotted by the government.”

Businesses are also exploring workplace drug testing in preparation for the legalization of marijuana, and requesting that the government provide a “legalized framework” for random drug and alcohol tests on company jobsites. As Louise Yako, President and CEO of the B.C. Trucking Association, stated, “We recognize that there is an increased safety risk due to the possibility of impairment and in order for the public safety risk to be reduced, we think it’s imperative that employers be allowed to randomly drug test workers that are in safety-sensitive positions.”

Yako is requesting that rules on random workplace testing be clarified to give employers the chance to effectively manage the safety of their worksites after 2018’s forthcoming legalization.

Workplace drug and alcohol testing is a hotly debated topic in Canadian courts, including Alberta’s Court of Appeal, which, in an unprecedented September ruling, permitted energy giant Suncor to continue to test its workers at its oilsands jobsites.

Contrary to Canadian businesses, unions across the country have yet to claim any position on the presence of legal marijuana in the workplace.

I Chose to Look the Other way
By Don Merrill

I could have saved a life that day, But I chose to look the other way. It wasn't that I didn't care, I had the time, and I was there. 

But I didn't want to seem a fool, Or argue over a safety rule. I knew he'd done the job before, If I spoke up, he might get sore. 

The chances didn't seem that bad, I'd done the same, He knew I had. So I shook my head and walked on by, He knew the risks as well as I. 

He took the chance, I closed an eye, And with that act, I let him die. I could have saved a life that day, But I chose to look the other way. 

Now every time I see his wife, I'll know, I should have saved his life. That guilt is something I must bear, But it isn't something you need share. 

If you see a risk that others take, That puts their health or life at stake. The question asked, or thing you say, Could help them live another day. 

If you see a risk and walk away, Then hope you never have to say, I could have saved a life that day, But I chose, to look the other way.

First Aid Friday

posted by Victory Safety    |   April 7, 2017 15:38

Spring is around the corner and with it's beautiful weather, spring brings it's bees and other insects. Here is a helpful tip to help if you are ever stung by a bee or other insect and the stinger is still in the skin.

 

Did you know you are supposed to scrape the stinger from the skin as opposed to pulling or plucking it out? This is because some stingers have a sac filled with venom. When you pull the stinger out you may press/squeeze on that sac causing more venom to be transferred into the bloodstream. So instead grab a card (ie. health card) and scrape the stinger off.

 

Keep this helpful tip handy this spring and summer!
