Compliance and Enforcement

Report on Technical Safety BC’s Compliance and Enforcement Program 2017

Technical Safety BC compels compliance with the Safety Standards Act when:

  • individuals have chosen to operate outside the safety system
  • safety hazards are found
  • individuals have resisted attempts to make their work or equipment compliant.

Disregarding any of these elements of our safety system may result in Technical Safety BC taking compliance/enforcement actions such as providing a warning notice, issuing a compliance order, or imposing a monetary penalty or discipline order. In the case of a discipline order, a contractor licence or individual certificate of qualification could be either suspended or revoked.
