The Continuing Care Safety Association (CCSA) has been preparing for the June 1st implementation of Bill 30, including the legislative changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Workers’ Compensation Board Act. As a result of these legislative changes the CCSA has been actively participating in Certifying Partner meetings with Alberta Labour, Partnerships and other Certifying Partners to ensure CCSA’s Quality Assurance COR Audit Standards and Processes are in alignment with Partnerships Standards and to ensure relevance to the continuing care industry. In addition, it is important to ensure that the audit process is a robust one that enhances the overall integrity of the COR program.
In addition to these changes, we have also had a long-standing employee decide to pursue other opportunities. Gordon Filipchuk, who has been with the CCSA since 2010, had his last day with the CCSA on April 20th. E-mails are being now being re-directed to Dana Loeppky, Director of Partnerships and Innovation, to whom the COR/PIR position reports: firstname.lastname@example.org . The CCSA will be proceeding to an open competition as soon as possible to fill this position. We will provide you with updated contact information once this position has been filled. In the interim, if you have any questions respecting the audit process for the upcoming year please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to: email@example.com or alternatively, to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are committed to sharing information from Occupational Health and Safety and Partnerships as it becomes available. We expect to continue to provide updates over the next 2-3 months, including more definitive timelines around an introduction of the revised 2019 CCSA audit instrument and additional details regarding anticipated changes to the 2019 audit processes.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the CCSA at 780-433-5330 or by email at email@example.com.
