FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 17, 2013
Alberta... The Continuing Care Safety Association (CCSA) has been successful in obtaining $750,000 in grant funding from the Government of Alberta to continue with the development and implementation of the CCSA Injury Reduction Program (IRP) for the 2014 fiscal year.
“Given the cutbacks and restricted funding opportunities currently, we are extremely pleased to have again received this funding.” said CCSA Executive Director Darryl Kutschinski. “It speaks to the value of the IRP program and reinforces that we have the support of government to continue with a program that has shown itself to be successful in reducing injuries in the workplace.”
Since its inception in 2010, the IRP has been implemented at 90 facilities across Alberta and approximately 8500 staff members have been trained in everything from Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention to Occupational Health & Safety Committee training. Previous year’s participants have experienced an average decrease of 64% in lost time claims and an average decrease of 73% in disabling injury rates.
Qualitatively, testimony from staff - front-line to management - has been overwhelmingly positive about the education they have received. Staff has also expressed appreciation that their employers are investing in their safety.
“We would definitely recommend the program to other facilities. It is a good program and very cost effective. Employee awareness and their buy in to the program has been remarkable. We have had a couple of employees come forth very excited about becoming in house trainers.” LTC Manager
“I am much more concerned about my back and body placement while performing my regular duties; even the things I do at home! Can’t wait for more!” SSL administrative staff
“We look forward to reaching out to more of our membership for the 2014 IRP implementation,” says Darryl Kutschinski, ”We are excited to work with more of our members in the upcoming year. We know this program works and we want to see more improvements made in the industry and more of our workers get home to their loved ones safely.”
