Technical Safety BC is committed to doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our clients, stakeholders, and employees. We remain in close contact with our safety partners and stakeholders to understand their challenges and needs during these difficult times and support them in meeting their regulatory responsibilities.  

If you own, operate or maintain technical systems and equipment, you are obligated to meet all regulatory requirements for public safety. 

Safety officers continue to perform safety critical assessments as per our mandate, either remotely or in person.
