WorkSafeBC has changed the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation. They have introduced:

  • new hazard assessment and air evacuation requirements for isolated workers;
  • specific first aid personnel and equipment requirements;
  • requirements for plans to minimize exposure when workers face chemical or biological hazards, and
  • rules around safe use of work platforms.

Many of these changes come about directly as a result of incidents and investigations related to the forest industry, and will affect forest operations’ safety activities.
