Compliance and Enforcement

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

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

Disregarding any of these elements of our safety system will result in Technical Safety BC taking 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.
