2nd Annual SafeCare BC Safety Den – Deadline April 21

SafeCare BC is holding its 2nd Annual Safety Den – sponsored by Points West AV – an exciting contest that highlights safety innovations in the home health and continuing care sectors. Following the success of last year’s event, which focused on safety innovations to prevent musculoskeletal injuries (MSI) and promote safe resident handling, this year’s competition is open to all ideas that reimagine injury prevention.

Three finalists will be chosen to compete at the event at our Annual Conference on Monday, May 29th from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, where they will present their safety innovations to our panel of safety judges.

This will include questions from the judges, moderator, and the audience. The winners will be chosen by the panel of judges, and awarded bragging rights, as well as cash prizes.

To apply, please tell us about your safety innovation in a one minute video or 250 words or less. The deadline to submit is April 21, 2017. SafeCare BC will cover the costs of travel expenses for finalists to participate if needed.
