Our Community Guidelines
Our social media channels represent a province-wide community with an interest in making BC a safe place to live and work. We appreciate opportunities to engage with our clients, safety partners, and the public, and welcome the conversations and connections that take place via our channels.
To ensure exchanges are kind, respectful, and courteous, we’ve put together these social media community guidelines that explain our code of conduct and expectations for participation.
We understand that many of our safety partners are passionate about keeping their families and loved ones safe, however even in the case of disagreement, interactions must remain respectful. Insults, threats, or harassment of individuals and employees will not be tolerated.
Examples include posts that:
- are defamatory, insulting, indecent, hateful, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, sexist, disgraceful, vulgar or otherwise inappropriate;
- encourage or suggest illegal or unsafe activity;
- contain personal information;
- do not comply with intellectual property rights; or
- are irrelevant to the topic at hand.
Comments or posts that violate these rules will be deleted. Individuals who continue to violate our community guidelines will be blocked for the safety of our community and employees.
Your Comments Are Public
Your comments and posts to our social media accounts are public. That means that they can be searched by others and may be captured, accessed, or used in the future. Be mindful of what you are posting and refrain from posting anything you’d prefer to be private.
Comments and Opinions Are Your Own
Comments and opinions expressed by members of the public are not endorsed by Technical Safety BC. While we will practice timely community management and delete any comments or posts that do not abide by our community guidelines, please note that we do not endorse or approve views expressed by external contributors.
Social Media Is Separate From Consultation
We welcome varying opinions, however if you are looking to give feedback regarding a specific initiative that you would like us to consider, we invite you to register for our Engage site. Through Engage, you’ll hear about new opportunities to connect and share your thoughts regarding initiatives like code changes and adoption, fees, and the development of client education or other programs.
Monitoring and Responding
We endeavor to read all messages, posts, and comments during the hours of 9 am and 5 pm, Monday to Friday (PST). We will respond when appropriate, but if you have a question about your account, please reach out to our Contact Centre for assistance. We aim to respond within 24 hours, but if you have pressing needs, we encourage you to reach out by email to email@example.com.
Updates to the Guidelines
We reserve the right to amend these guidelines at any time without prior notice.
