February 20, 2015 Update to OHS Regulations

Many sections of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation and Workers Compensation Act (“Act“) have associated guidelines. Guidelines are intended to assist with providing ways of complying with the legislation, not to provide exclusive interpretations. Guidelines generally provide information on administrative matters and on technical matters not already addressed by policy.

Periodically, guidelines are updated and new ones added. The following guideline was updated on February 20, 2015.

Part 19 Electrical Safety

G19.27 Specially trained
This guideline has been revised to include a course approved by WorkSafeBC, and to update the list of work activities that may be conducted under section 19.27.
