The Certified safe Initiative
At Equi-Health Canada the health and safety of horses is our priority. In 2018 our 'certified safe' initiative was launched, where barn, ranch and stable owners could bring in our instructors and learn first aid, advanced first aid, and disaster planning for them and their staff, volunteers and/or family/boarders, ensuring a well-prepared team and a certified safe facility for anyone visiting or residing there.
How do you get certified safe?
They have hosted an EHC-sanctioned Equine Health and Emergency First Aid clinic and have staff or volunteers onsite with current first aid certification.
They have hosted an EHC-sanctioned Advanced Equine Emergency First Aid clinic and have staff or volunteers onsite with current advanced certification.
They have hosted an EHC-sanctioned Disaster Planning and Emergency Preparedness clinic and have staff or volunteers onsite with current certification
They have an ongoing relationship with Equi-Health Canada, remaining up-to-date on new health and emergency protocols, and host a minimum of two EHC-sanctioned courses per year, with any of the currently certified Equi-Health Canada Instructors.
Facilities who meet these criteria are awarded an annual Certified Safe certificate to hang on their facility wall. They will also have their facility listed here with website link and contact information at no charge.
If you have hosted the above three courses in the past year, please contact us to have your facility added to the Certified Safe listings
