Safe Technical Systems. Everywhere.

We aspire to build confidence in a safety system that improves the wellbeing of British Columbians.

Safety is a shared responsibility

Workers, licence or permit holders, manufacturers, associations, trade unions, consumers, regulators, and government all have a role to play in the safety system.  

The risks and safety requirements of technical equipment change throughout its lifecycle. We assess what protections are in place at every stage: design, and manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance, repair and alteration, transfer of ownership, and re-use to disposal. 

We work with our clients, stakeholders, and the public to build and implement programs that reduce safety risk through regulation, research, education, and enforcement. We are constantly learning as the technologies that we regulate evolve.
