Salvation Army Health and Safety E-Courses and Resources
As a follow up to our territorial COVID-19 vaccination policy, territorial headquarters has partnered with Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto to adapt the following COVID-19 e-learning module to provide information for officers, employees and volunteers on COVID-19 and the available vaccines.
It can be accessed at: https://covid19vaccineed.salvationarmy.ca
The information contained in this learning module is based on the most current medical and scientific information and is applicable to all ministry units across Canada. We encourage all Ministry Unit leaders to share this training module widely with those under their supervision in order to broaden everyone’s understanding of COVD-19 and vaccinations.
For those who have requested a vaccination exemption, have chosen not to get vaccinated at this time, or have chosen not to declare their vaccination status, completion of the education module is mandatory. They will be registered to complete this education module by their HR manager / Personnel representative and will receive an invite to complete the module via Booth University College. This allows us to track completion.
The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, officers, clients and congregants is the highest priority for The Salvation Army. The pandemic has required The Salvation Army to respond swiftly and nimbly to the varied public health policies and measures across the territory.
The territorial COVID-19 vaccination policy is designed to strongly support provincial health and public health guidelines and policies. The goal is to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by keeping all of our programs and institutions safe for those who come through our doors daily.
Thank you for your support of the policy and for your efforts in educating others about the importance of vaccination.
