State of Safety 2019 Compliance and enforcement

Compliance and enforcement

hero

Overview

When non-compliances are identified, our first step is often to work with duty holders to help them understand their obligations, and provide them with a clear pathway to resolution. However, when these interventions don't achieve the desired result, Technical Safety BC may take enforcement action to achieve compliance.
