BCTF Health and Safety Program

Important back to school updates from the BCTF

Health and safety are top priorities as schools reopen  

With increased in-class instruction in our public education system now in place, many teachers have questions and concerns about their own health and safety, and that of their students. Your Federation has been working around the clock advocating with government for districts to implement stringent health and safety protocols, and for teachers’ rights to safe and healthy workplaces to be respected. Below you will find information from fellow teachers who are health and safety experts, and the plans and protocols from relevant government bodies.  

The BCTF Health and Safety Program supports members through training, workshops, wellness advocacy, and assistance with WCB appeals. Members can serve as the health and safety representative in their locals. In addition, they can apply to serve on the BCTF Health and Safety Advisory Committee (HSAC) which advises the BCTF Executive Committee on health and safety issues in schools.
