BC Safety Authority releases 2016-2018 Business Plan

BC Safety Authority (BCSA) has released its 2016-2018 Business Plan, outlining its goals for the next three years and defining how it will measure success. The theme “Growing Participation” represents BCSA’s business focus in year four of its 10-Year Strategy

“BCSA relies on industry and the public to actively participate in the safety system. Because of this, we will continue to strategically invest in technology to make it easier, faster, and more convenient for all clients to connect with us,” says Catherine Roome, BCSA President & CEO. “The result of this effort will be more people participating in the safety system.”

BCSA’s business plan describes how it will deliver on its strategy by enhancing support for the integrity of the safety system, with a focus on increasing participation and creating better connections in 2016.

“We will use technology tools to put more valuable safety information into the hands of our employees, clients, stakeholders and the public,” says Roome. “The availability and exchange of this information will change behaviours in a predictable way, resulting in better safety.”

BCSA’s six strategic priorities will build on existing technical expertise to benefit clients and society by influencing better safety outcomes. In 2016, BCSA will:

  1. Expand and enhance its client portal.
  2. Expand the safety products and services it offers to asset/equipment owners.
  3. Enhance technology infrastructure and processes for employees.
  4. Expand and enhance its Resource Allocation Program (RAP).
  5. Standardize and enhance its certification processes.
  6. Implement compliance and enforcement program improvements.

“Overall, by putting our clients at the centre of what we do to grow participation in the safety system, we are positioning BCSA to achieve our vision of Safe Technical Systems. Everywhere.”

BCSA issues its Business Plan each year in accordance with the Administrative Agreements between the organization and the Province of British Columbia, and as part of BCSA’s commitment to maintain transparency.
