Ontario Safety Guidelines - Now Available for Everyone!
Last week at the 2012 Ophea Conference, we were able to share some great news regarding the Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines (Safety Guidelines).
Historically, the Safety Guidelines have been available on a subscription-only basis. In response to recent student fatalities and accidents associated with school-based sport, and to help ensure the safety of all students of Ontario, as of October 2012, Ophea has received funding from the Government of Ontario to open access to the Safety Guidelines. As a result, the Safety Guidelines website is no longer password-protected, and the Safety Guidelines are now available for all teachers, administrators, coaches, after school providers, public health workers and parents across Ontario to access, free-of-charge.
