Everything we do has the safety of British Columbians in mind.

We work with industry and the public to reduce safety risk through permits, licensing, enforcement, education and research.

We are a different kind of regulator. We are, first and foremost, educators and partners, sharing what we know and what we learn to improve technical safety throughout BC.
