Health & Safety

Health and Safety Chair:  Taryn Mah

The Saanich Teacher’s Association is committed to promoting and supporting safe schools.

The BC Teachers’ Federation facilitates teacher health and safety with a superb variety of resources and programs ranging from prevention to claim advocacy.

If you are injured or suffer from an occupational disease or are threatened in a violent incident, you need to:

  • Report to the First Aid Attendant
  • Report to the administrator and complete the WorksafeBC 6A form
  • Go to your doctor
  • Contact your staff and/or health and safety rep
  • Report to Worksafe BC via teleclaim at 1 888-WORKERS (1 888 967-5377)
  • When you get a letter back from WorksafeBC, send a copy to the BCTF WCB advocate who will help you through the process.
