WorkSafeBC states that all employers should annually evaluate many elements of their current OHS safety program to ensure its effectiveness. Many of our clients request an annual audit from us, for their current OHS safety program which they have in place or had developed from us, to determine whether their program is being implemented effectively/properly and whether there are any gaps within their safety program which are not being implemented as per the OHSR regulation. We do recommend having a yearly safety audit completed from us. Our audit process is also a form of due diligence for your organization which shows that an annual OHS safety program evaluation was conducted for your organization.
We always touch base with our clients on an annual basis to remind you of the audit process. Here are the PACE initiative requirements which will educate you on why an annual evaluation of your program is very important to have completed: Industry Initiatives[Program committee Evaluation Pace]
