Regina, SK - The safety of our clients, members, partners, and the public are a top priority to the Saskatchewan Safety Council. As part of the Council’s Pandemic Emergency Response, the following outlines our current and planned response to the Coronavirus outbreak. Currently, our understanding is that the threat level in Saskatchewan is considered low, but there is potential for rapid escalation. Taking the advice of experts, the Saskatchewan Safety Council will not overreact to the current situation; but will be as diligent as possible in monitoring for updates, exercising precautions, and acting upon the recommendations found on this Government of Saskatchewan public health webpage. In the case of current and active Council programs for which the public may register, such as our Defensive Driving, Fall Protection, and Work Zone sessions, we are taking the following actions: Current: All participants who may be uncomfortable with attending an event during this time, feel they are at personal risk, or for any other reason, have the option to reschedule their training session. At the point of entry to a training facility, we are advising any prospective attendee who may have recently traveled to an affected area, or, who are in any way feeling or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, to call and reschedule their session rather than attending or entering the training location. For those attending a session, the Council recommends that personal hygiene and social distancing be considered. Council staff continue to monitor directives from the Federal and Provincial Health Authorities for updates. The Council is circulating videos and training on Hand Washing and illness prevention. Potential: If a Saskatchewan community is placed on alert for possible spread of the virus, the Council will immediately reschedule all events and courses in the affected community for 30 to 60 days later. This can happen right up to and including the day of the course. We will advise all those registered as promptly as possible. The Council acknowledges the potential challenges and stresses brought about by situations such as these and will continue doing its best to be responsive, flexible, and cooperative in its effort to deliver quality training services and resources to the people in the province of Saskatchewan.
