Cambridge Memorial Hospital speaks for us!
Safe Management Group has provided code white and de-escalation training to our hospital staff for many years, and continues to be a great resource tool in the protection of our staff. Their philosophy and approach aligns with our organization’s values of respect and collaboration and with our workplace violence prevention policies. The trainers are knowledgeable, interactive and always professional. Our staff come away from training with a significantly improved readiness and self-confidence when managing behavioural situations. We had the opportunity to work closely with Safe Management Group to implement a hybrid training model with an online and hands on training approach during the COVID pandemic. This was all new for our organization and Safe Management Group was flexible and knowledgeable about how to set this up for success and are with us the whole way through.
Training and Covid-19 Protocols – September 15, 2021
Safe Management Group (SMG) is committed to providing a safe environment for clients, visitors, staff, and our consultants. In order to do this in the context of this challenging environment, we continue to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and receive frequent updates from regional, provincial and federal health authorities regarding infection prevention and screening directives.
On August 17, 2021, all public hospitals and community service providers in Ontario received provincial direction (set out in the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s COVID-19 Directive #6), requiring that all persons working in these facilities be fully vaccinated or submit to regular antigen testing and provide verification of the negative test result.
In support of this directive, Safe Management Group is enhancing screening of all clients and visitors who enter our various sites or receive services in their community. As a result, all individuals over the age of 12 years will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or confirmation of a negative antigen test completed within the previous 72 hours. PLEASE NOTE: Proof of vaccination or a negative antigen test must be forwarded to SMG prior to arrival at our Oakville Training Centre. Clients and visitors who do not meet these criteria will not be permitted to participate in training.
COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the global effort to manage this pandemic. It is up to each of us to get vaccinated as soon as possible, so together we can start to lessen the transmission of COVID-19 and safeguard the well-being of our clients and colleagues.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
Your path to a safer workplace.
