Safety is a major priority at BCRC. BCRC has
worked diligently to develop and refine a safety program
that has secured the well-being of both clients and
staff. The BCRC Safety Committee plays a major
role in BCRC’s “Work Safe” program. The Safety
Committee is comprised of 13 members, with
representatives from every facility. Annually,
BCRC conducts a Safety Awareness Week where clients and
staff receive training on such topics as blood borne
pathogens, fire safety, and pedestrian safety.
Throughout the year, the Safety Committee provides
safety leadership, and additional in-service training.
Clients and staff receive training on issues such as
tornadoes and proper lifting techniques. Regular
inspections are another way that BCRC carries out the
lessons and the spirit of Safety Week. Fire
drills, tornado drills, and inspections are conducted
monthly. Yearly, BCRC is inspected by the Fire
Department, Insurance Companies and the Pennsylvania
O.M.R., Western Region. BCRC consistently receives
high marks from safety inspectors as we strive to ensure
the safety of everyone we serve.
