Sailing for Safety is a fun and simple way to track education process. Using a drawn map and paper sailboats, staff “sail” around Vancouver Island completing education modules for different ports as they go. Every staff member is encouraged to participate by colouring a sailboat, naming it and doing the education modules and experiences. The experiences are in-house education such as back care and lifting. Staff receive nautical miles on completion of the education modules, inhouse attendance is worth more miles.
The program aims to increase participation in education and decrease work-related injuries to staff.
