Community Social Services Sector Proud to Launch New Injury Prevention Handbook

Following three years of work with sectoral partners that include CSSEA, the Federation of Community Social Services of BC (The Fed) and WorkSafeBC, with support from the Community Social Services Bargaining Association (CSSBA), we are pleased to jointly launch the Community Social Services Health & Safety Handbook. The Handbook is a first-of-its-kind resource in Canada for the social services sector and provides strategies on how employers can prevent workplace injury, respond in the event of an occupational injury and reintegrate employees back to the workplace following an injury.

How to Learn More

Several initiatives will be rolled out in the coming weeks in order to familiarize employers with the content, features and uses of the Handbook. A webinar is scheduled for May 10 from 10:30 to 11:30am, and is open to all who register online. The webinar will be followed by in-person sessions around the province, where attendees can bring questions and receive a hard copy of the Handbook. Dates, times and locations for those sessions will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.


The Handbook was made possible by the joint commitment of CSSEA, The Fed, CSSBA and WorkSafeBC, under the leadership of Project Manager Satvinder Basran. Additional workplace insights provided by the 26 CSSEA agencies that were a part of the project since its inception, as well as four additional agencies who joined in the last year, provided invaluable firsthand knowledge that contributed directly to the publication. The partners will continue to work on injury prevention, disability management and resource development for the sector, as the project has been renewed for one more year.
