Incidents and hazards 

We investigate incidents to understand safety hazards in BC and what actions can be taken to manage those hazards. These incidents must involve a regulated product, which is a piece of equipment or system that is subject to the Safety Standards Act.

Have you witnessed unsafe working conditions in an area we don't regulate? Contact WorkSafeBC.

Call 911

If you require immediate emergency assistance, call 911.
