BC Safety Authority is now Technical Safety BC

BC Safety Authority today announced that it is adopting a new operating name and identity. From now on, BC Safety Authority will be known as “Technical Safety BC.”


“We have evolved extensively since becoming an independent organization in 2004, and today we are adopting a new identity that reflects the progress we have made toward becoming the trusted partner in technical safety,” said Catherine Roome, President and CEO. “Our new identity will help distinguish us from other regulators as we continue to build awareness, understanding, and ownership of safety responsibilities among our clients and stakeholders.”

The identity change comes following extensive consultation with clients and industry stakeholders. It reflects the move toward becoming a knowledge and data-driven organization that uses smart systems and processes, predictive analytics, education, and knowledge sharing to operate more efficiently, prevent incidents, and enhance safety. 

“The Board of Directors fully supports this opportunity for Technical Safety BC to increase the understanding and ownership of safety responsibilities in our clients, partners and the public,” said George Abbott, Chair of the Board of Directors. “This is the next step for an organization that is increasingly agile and innovative, constantly learning and adapting to evaluate and manage risk.”

“Our new identity and name reflect the changes we are making to be more connected, clear and innovative in order to better serve our clients and advance technical safety in BC,” said Roome. “Safety of technical systems is a shared responsibility, and our new identity will enable us to better connect with partners and achieve our vision of Safe technical systems. Everywhere.”

As part of its efforts to be connected, clear and innovative, Technical Safety BC recently introduced new and improved online services designed to save clients time. In the coming months, they will also launch a new website developed according to input from clients and stakeholders to improve navigation and access to information.
