Client safety

Client safety is of upmost importance with Safe Harbor. Safe Harbor applies a meticulous and consistent process for the recruitment, selection, and hiring of staff, in accordance with state and federal regulations, equal opportunity requirements and non-discriminatory regulations. Only qualified and trained caregivers are introduced to our clients. Safe Harbor requires that all new employees undergo criminal and other background checks as a condition of employment, to include: TB testing, DMV driving record, drug testing, registration clearance, fit-for-duty physical, and work experience are verified and assessed to guarantee that our clients receive qualified caregivers to care for them.

Staff training & development

Staff training & development is a planned intervention that is implemented to ensure employees are thoroughly knowledgeable and competent in carrying out their duties/activities. Its intent is to avoid problems by being proactive in planning formal and informal sessions which distribute information and techniques to personal care attendants.

Equal Opportunity Employer

It is the policy of the Safe Harbor to afford equal employment opportunity to all individuals, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, gender, national origin,  ancestry, age, marital status, veteran status, disability, medical condition (as defined by California Government Code section 12929), gender identity, expression, or sexual orientation.

Our employees, as well as applicants and others with whom we do business, will not be subjected to sexual, racial, religious, ethnic, or any other form of unlawful harassment and/or discrimination. We are completely committed to these principles—not only because of the various laws which address these subjects—but because it is the right thing to do.

If you have any specific questions about Safe Harbor’s policies and procedures, please contact the office at (858) 634-1012. We will be happy to address any questions you may have.
