Industry Initiatives 2017

WorkSafeBC’s Industry Initiatives identify additional sectors and subsectors, outside of the High Risk Strategies, with a high risk of serious workplace injury and significant contribution to the serious injury rate. Each initiative focuses prevention efforts on identified areas of high risk in order to apply resources and effort where they will be most effective.

The 2017 High Risk Initiative focus areas include three industry-based sectors — marine, oil and gas, and agriculture — as well as a number of general risk areas.
