Key Initiatives

Some of the major activities we undertook in 2018 to make British Columbia safer.
Fault Trees

Fault Tree Studies

Fault trees and studies are helping us identify the causal factors behind the hazards we see most often: ammonia release, escalator brake failure and electric shock. 

Trampoline Parks Review

Should trampoline parks be regulated? We've launched a review of our Amusement Devices aimed at addressing regulatory gaps that cause undue safety hazards for the public.

Safety Officer

Finding High Risk Hazards

We've introduced machine learning and artificial intelligence technology into the algorithms we use to find risks. This helps augment our safety officers' expertise, so they can locate more high risk hazards, more effectively.
