Course Cancellation & Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 At Actsafe, the health and safety of our course participants and the Actsafe team is of the utmost importance. As such, Actsafe has decided it best to cancel all inhouse classes scheduled up to and including April 5, 2020 to mitigate the impacts associated with the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community. 

If you registered and paid for either the Occupational First Aid-Level 1 course or the Motion Picture Industry Orientation course, you have the option of getting a refund or keeping a credit on file for a future date.

If you are registered for the Motion Picture Safety 201 – Safety for Supervisors course, the Joint Health & Safety Committee Fundamentals course or the Reel Green Carbon Literacy course, there will be no charge to rebook into a future date.

 We apologize for any inconvenience these cancellations may cause.

Leavitt Machinery courses are going ahead as scheduled. However, if you are exhibiting the following symptoms, coughing, high fever, difficulty breathing, we ask that you do not go to class. Please let us know and we will rebook you into a later class at no additional charge.

Actsafe is following the situation and will provide updates when necessary. If you have any questions, feel free to email: info@actsafe.ca.

 Follow our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for updates.

Preventative Measures

We are all responsible for safeguarding ourselves and take every precautionary measure to remain uninfected with the virus. Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others. Health Canada suggests:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after:

o   using the washroom and when preparing food

o   use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available

  • when coughing or sneezing:

o   cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand

o   dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Mental Health

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, Actsafe reminds you that taking care of mental health is as important as looking after physical health. Coronavirus has thrust the world into uncertainty and this may be taking its toll on people’s mental health. For those who may be suffering from the stress of this situation, please remember that there are resources through Calltime: Mental Health that can help. We urge everyone to look out for one another during this time.

Actsafe Team Availability

Actsafe Safety Association is doing its part in mitigating the exposure and spread of COVID-19 to its team and community. Therefore, the Actsafe office is currently closed until further notice. However, the team are working remotely and continue to be available by phone, email, or LiveChat. Please reach out with any queries or concerns.

In the midst of COVID-19 we’ve curated a selection of resources we believe to be of value to our industries, which you may view here.
