Occupational Health & Safety Regulation (OHSR)

Aliases: OHS Regulation The Regulation OHS Legislation

The OHSR contains legal requirements that must be met by all workplaces under the inspectional jurisdiction of WorkSafeBC under the authority of the Workers Compensation Act .

Many sections of the OHSR have associated guidelines and policies.

The purpose of the OHSR is to promote occupational health and safety and to protect workers and other persons present at workplaces from work-related risks to their health, safety, and well-being. Compliance with the requirements provides the basis on which workers and employers, in cooperation, can solve workplace health and safety problems. The requirements are not an end in themselves, but are a foundation upon which to build an effective health and safety program.
