Trends in Safety

Our work in 2018 to enhance safety in the province, plus analysis, trends and learnings.


We investigate incidents to understand safety hazardsso we can learn from them and prevent them from happening again.



Tracking injuries reported as a result of incidents helps us better understand the hazards related to regulated equipment.



The permits we issue give us insight into what regulated work is being done, where and by whom.



We use a number of tools, including in-person inspections, to assess regulated workand to enforce duty holders' safety obligations.


Compliance & Enforcement

When people and companies work without the necessary permits or qualifications, or resist efforts to make their work safe, we take action to ensure compliance.

Licensing and Certification

We issue licences to businesses that perform regulated work, and certificates of qualification to individuals who demonstrate a required level of knowledge and experience.
