Strategic Plan

WorkSafeBC’s 2012–2017 strategic plan, called Safe Work & Outstanding Service, provides continuity with the past and a road map for the future. The plan defines the broad strategies and actions for achieving WorkSafeBC’s goals over this five-year period to ensure the organization is directing and aligning its efforts and resources toward the important goals that have been established, as well as confirming the values and commitments WorkSafeBC wants to be known for going forward.

In so doing, the plan builds on the significant progress WorkSafeBC has made and confirms WorkSafeBC’s continuing focus on preventing workplace injury — particularly serious injury, illness and disease; providing outstanding service to workers and employers; and ensuring healthy, durable return to work for injured workers.

The plan also recognizes various challenges, such as the persistence of serious injuries, occupational diseases, societal health issues, changes to demographics, the pace of technological change, and more.

Service Plan

Our 2015–2017 Service Plan is integrated into our 2015 Annual Report. The plan highlights the challenges and opportunities we face, and identifies the priorities for the years ahead.

WorkSafeBC priorities include:

  • Continued focus on the prevention of workplace injury, illness, and disease
  • Further reduction of the injury rate — particularly in high-risk sectors
  • Continued commitment to service, quality, and responsiveness
  • Fiscal responsibility for a sustainable workers' compensation system
  • Efficiency of the human, technological, and physical resources of WorkSafeBC

We are accountable to the public, workers, and employers.
