Our Strategy

We aspire to build confidence in a safety system that improves the wellbeing of British Columbians.

Safety is a Shared Responsibility

Workers, license or permit holders, manufacturers, associations, trade unions, consumers, regulators, and government all have a role to play.

Safety requirements, risks, and participants change throughout the lifecycle of equipment

We assess what protections are in place at every stage: design and manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance, repair and alteration, transfer of ownership, reuse to disposal.

Our values reflect our vision for Safe Technical Systems. Everywhere.

We see genius in diversity

When we each bring our unique perspective in the spirit of collaboration and respect, our ideas get better, and our impact on the safety system increases.

We make the complex simple

By simplifying what we do, we promote understanding and engagement, making safety accessible to everyone.

We foster confidence

We communicate directly, listen actively, explain our decisions and share what we know to build confidence in each other, our organization, and the safety system.

We adapt

As our province changes, we create and adopt new ideas, skills and tools that enable us to meet the safety challenges of a highly connected world.

We have chosen six areas of focus
