ALL BUSINESSES IN B.C. ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO HAVE A WRITTEN OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROGRAM IN PLACE.
FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN YOUR COMPANY RECEIVING FINES, PENALTIES, SANCTIONS OR STOP WORK ORDERS.
According to the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, it’s the employer’s responsibility to implement an occupational health and safety (OHS) program to prevent employee workplace injury and disease. OHS safety programs in British Columbia must meet certain safety standards. The employer must exercise due diligence in taking steps to meet those standards.
You must have a 'formal' health and safety program if you have either a workforce of 20 or more workers and at least one workplace where there is a moderate or high risk of injury and when you have a workforce of 50 or more workers. Small businesses or employers with fewer than 20 workers need a health and safety program too. These programs can be simpler. We refer to them as "informal" health and safety programs.
Health and safety programs are aimed at ensuring workers are protected, risks are minimized, and a healthy and safe workplace is maintained. All employers must establish some form of health and safety program at the workplace. The type of program you need depends on the number of workers you have and the risks associated with their work. Though every workplace and every occupational health and safety (OHS) program are different, there are some key elements common to all programs.
Our professional and certified Health and Safety Consultants are able to develop your small or large business a complete written occupational health and safety program specific to your companies operations, specific to your industry and which will meet with all WorkSafeBC legislative requirements.
