Joint Release: Connect and Recover program launch at select stations

Dear Members, 

Joint Release: Connect and Recover program launch at stations, facilities in Vancouver Coastal and Fraser districts 

We are pleased to announce that select stations/facilities have been selected for Connect and Recover, a collaborative injury management program created to support our staff when they have musculoskeletal injuries like strains, sprains and soft tissue injuries.  Please refer to the joint memo HERE for full details.

The program will launch on June 2, 2021 and will be offered at select stations in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser districts as well as the Vancouver Dispatch Operations Centre.  Please see addendum in joint memo for a list of stations and facilities.

This program was developed in partnership with WorkSafeBC and the Ambulance Paramedics of BC, CUPE Local 873.  Connect and Recover provides early identification, interventions and modified work duties so staff with musculoskeletal injuries can “connect and recover” at work.

BCEHS and APBC are committed to a culture of safety, teamwork and enhancing injury prevention and recovery.  Connect and Recover will help injured employees heal and get healthier faster.
