Our 100-year anniversary

This year marks a milestone for WorkSafeBC — the 100-year anniversary of British Columbia’s workers’ compensation system.

Since 1917, WorkSafeBC has helped to improve the health and safety of British Columbians in the workplace by building a sustainable no-fault insurance system that supports both workers and employers now and for generations to come.

Working closely with our employer and industry partners, we promote a workplace culture of health and safety. We provide support for injured workers that facilitates their recovery and safe return to work. We continue to work toward our vision of a province free from workplace injury, disease, and death.

Over the course of this year, we will be sharing highlights of our past 100 years. Stay tuned for updates throughout 2017.
