Technical Safety BC is now conducting assessments remotely, rather than in-person, for all technologies that they regulate. Physical assessments will only be conducted when they are determined to be critical to the safety system.

TSBC safety officers will perform an OHS hazard assessment before any site visit to evaluate hazards, including exposure to COVID-19, and determine personal protective equipment (PPE) needs.  Site contacts will provide safety officers with a plan that ensures that appropriate controls, compliant with WorkSafeBC and Public Health, are in place. This will include hand-washing and social distancing procedures.
