OPHEA Opens Safety Guidelines to all Ontario Residents

Oct 18, 2012 | Uncategorized

The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines 

The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines (Safety Guidelines), available in English and French, represent the minimum standards for risk management practice for physical education, physical activities and sports within school boards. They outline safe practices for physical activities to minimize the risk of accidents or injuries. The Safety Guidelines are a valuable online resource for all school board staff, principals, teachers, coaches and parents in Ontario. 

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. 

To access the Safety Guidelines, please visit http://safety.ophea.net or contact [email protected] 

The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines have been developed, and continue to be maintained, in partnership with OSBIE, CIRA-ON, OFSAA and OASPHE . 

Les lignes directrices sur la sécurité en éducation physique de l’Ontario 

Les lignes directrices sur la sécurité en éducation physiques de l’Ontario (les lignes directrices), disponibles en anglais et en français, indiquent les normes minimales à intégrer à la politique de gestion des risques pour l’éducation physique, ainsi que pour les activités physiques et sportives offertes par les conseils scolaires. Elles décrivent les pratiques sécuritaires à respecter pour toute activité physique afin de minimiser le risque d’accident ou de blessure. Les lignes directrices constituent une ressource en ligne utile pour les conseils scolaires, les directions d’écoles, les enseignants et enseignantes, les entraîneurs et les parents. 

Jusqu’à présent, un abonnement était nécessaire pour accéder aux lignes directrices. En raison des accidents et des décès d’élèves récents liés aux sports scolaires, et afin d’assurer la meilleure protection possible pour tous les élèves de l’Ontario, Ophea peut, grâce au financement du gouvernement de l’Ontario, offrir libre accès aux lignes directrices sur la sécurité à partir du mois d’octobre 2012. Donc, le site Web des lignes directrices ne requiert plus de mot de passe, et les lignes directrices peuvent dorénavant être consultées par tous les enseignants, les administrateurs, les entraîneurs, les fournisseurs d’activités parascolaires, les professionnels du réseau de santé publique et les parents, partout en Ontario. 

Pour consulter les lignes directrices sur la sécurité, veuillez visiter le site http://safety.ophea.net/fr ou contacter [email protected] 

Les lignes directrices sur la sécurité en éducation physique de l’Ontario ont été rédigées et sont révisées de façon continue en collaboration avec OSBIE, CIRA-ON, OFSAA et OASPHE.
