- Policy Statement
Established in 1997, Kingston: Partners for a Safe Community was the fourth community to be designated in Canada by the Safe Communities Foundation.
Today we are a Charter Member Community of a network of 36 designated communities in Canada. We provide the Kingston community with the support, tools, and networks to develop and maintain successful health and safety programs.
- Our Mandate, Our Mission, Our Programs
We are dedicated to making Kingston the safest city to live, work, learn and play in!
We want people to come together in the community to create a sense of awareness, understanding, support and leadership to implement local programmes to eliminate injuries and suffering.
As the corporate sponsor of Kingston: Partners for a Safe Community, Wilkens Health & Safety Solutions is locally owned and operated. Founded in 2001 to provide businesses of all sizes with innovative solutions to their health and safety needs. The principal consultant has expert knowledge of the provincial and federal regulatory requirements.
The owner is the co-founder of Kingston: Partners for a Safe Community, a project she initiated while at Queen's University in Kingston. WHSS has developed a proven track record.
Our aim is an injury-free Canada. Parachute wants to bring attention to the issue of preventable injury and to help Canadians reduce their risks of injury and enjoy long lives lived to the fullest.
Parachute is a national, charitable organization, formed in July 2012, which unites the former organizations of Safe Communities Canada, Safe Kids Canada, SMARTRISK and ThinkFirst Canada into one strong leader in injury prevention. This passionate, unified voice leverages 80 years of combined injury-prevention experience and we cannot be underestimated in our resolve and capacity to effect change.
The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) promotes workplace health and safety, and provides a workers compensation system for the employers and workers of Ontario. There is extensive information on this site about prevention, forms, health issues, return to work programs, and links to other health and safety organizations.
Kingston: Partners for a Safe Community works in partnership with the WSIB through its sponsoring of a multi-sector, community safety group.
