WorkSafeBC’s Prevention Services teams are working to reduce the rate of serious injuries in the oil and gas sector. Through a combination of targeted inspections, health and safety consultations, and strategic partnerships, we’re focusing our prevention efforts on helping workplaces in the energy sector manage their risks.

As part of this work, our officers will be engaging with workers, supervisors, managers, and joint health and safety committee members or safety representatives on site visits to ensure that identified workplace risks have appropriate controls applied and are being effectively managed.

Managing risk in your workplace is important to reduce the potential for injury or disease. The resources listed here provide detailed information to help you understand and address some of the health and safety issues in the energy sector.

Additional information and resources are available on our Oil & gas industry webpage, and from our industry partner, Energy Safety Canada.
