THE SAFE COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION

THE SAFE COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION

works in partnership with the private and public sectors to improve the health and safety of workers and people throughout the community. The goal of the Safe Communities Foundation is to eliminate injuries, while promoting a culture of safety across the country. Working at both a grassroots and global level, the Foundation believes that safe communities are a basic human right. The Foundation has already established partnerships with communities in Ontario and Alberta.

At the local level, the Foundation works with community organizations to bring occupational health and safety expertise to small businesses and links them to many other community-wide safety initiatives. It raises funds from the private sector to support the injury prevention programs developed locally. The Foundation has produced a booklet to help interested communities through the process of launching a safe communities project. It is available from the Safe Communities Foundation by phoning (416) 964-0008 or faxing (416) 964-0089, or on the website

SAFE COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION RESPONSE TO: CREATING SAFE COMMUNITIES, A PROGRESS REPORT (Written by Tammy Smith, M.HSc)

http://www.safecommunities.ca/progressreport.html



This report, commissioned by the Safe Communities Foundation, was focussed on determining "what is working well and what could make the Foundation's activities even more effective"? The report, carried out during the first quarter of 1997, examined the Foundation's operations in the first three communities to become involved with the Safe Communities Foundation: Brockville, Medicine Hat and Waterloo.
