Incidents and hazards
We investigate incidents to understand safety hazards in BC and what actions can be taken to manage those hazards. These incidents must involve a regulated product, which is a piece of equipment or system that is subject to the Safety Standards Act.
Have you witnessed unsafe working conditions in an area we don't regulate? Contact WorkSafeBC.
If you require immediate emergency assistance, call 911.

Incidents and hazards can be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week by completing our incident form or by calling 1-866-566-7233.
