The Sleep Lab handles initial assessments of children, performs diagnostic tests such as overnight sleep studies and oximetry testing, and provides treatment in the form of titrating positive airway pressure for breathing problems while sleeping. Following the titration, the client can then go home with a properly fitted and titrated continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine and mask.
Situated within the Stollery Children’s Hospital, the Sleep Lab is operated under Alberta Health Services (AHS) and shares its values and beliefs. The Stollery, which officially opened in 2001, “is committed to meeting the ever-changing needs of children and their families in an environment that integrates excellence in the delivery of care, education, and research” (Western Canadian Children`s Heart Network [WCCHN], 2012, “Background”). Furthermore, the Stollery “is committed to providing children with the best health care available and dedicated to offering a family-centered environment for its patients and their families” (WCHN, 2012, “Background”). The Stollery receives referrals of more than 1.7 million and reaches children from Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut (WCHN, 2012, “Background”). The Sleep Lab often sees children from northern rural Alberta and even further north from the territories. Currently, there is about a one to two month wait to get into the Sleep Lab which is by referral only.

Situation
Given that the Sleep Lab assesses sleep disorders, sleep studies occur between 1900-0700 Monday to Fridays. Because of this, Polysomnography Technicians, also referred to as PSG Techs or Sleeps Techs, need to work odd hours and often even alone which can pose several hazards. To address these hazards, all staff employed under AHS must have their worksite assessed for potential hazards and any existing hazards must be identified and then either eliminated or controlled as indicated under Health and Safety Legislation (Alberta Queen’s Printer [AQP], 2013) and AHS’ Workplace Health and Safety Policy #1121 (AHS, 2014). Furthermore, AHS has its own policy re: working alone which applies to the Sleep Lab.
AHS is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment and believes that the health and safety of their workers is fundamental to the provision of safe and quality health services (AHS, 2014). Furthermore, AHS believes that all incidents are preventable (AHS, 2014), hence the necessity and importance of this project. Safety is one of AHS’ key 7 values. The value of safety includes “reinforcing safe behaviours by actively identifying and responding to safety concerns” (AHS, n.d., p. 9) which this project aims to accomplish.
This project is guided by the Workplace Health and Safety Policy #1121, specifically the Hazard Identification, Assessment, and Control (HIAC) Process under policy element 1: Workplace Health and Safety Management System (AHS, 2014).
