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.
Thirteen industry initiatives have been identified for 2019.
- Asbestos – commercial
- Asbestos – residential
- Lead, silica, sensitizers, solar radiation, and welding fumes
