The province is further protecting health-care workers, patients, families and frontline workers during COVID-19 with Western Canada’s first accredited personal protective equipment (PPE) lab, specializing in testing and validating PPE.
The lab is a pandemic-driven innovation by Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), with support from the Ministry of Health and the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA).
“The safety of our health-care and frontline workers continues to be a top priority as we prepare our health-care system and our province for long-term management of COVID-19,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “This collaborative effort demonstrates B.C.’s leadership in innovative solutions in the face of challenges brought on by the pandemic, and dedication to staff and patient safety.”
