Table of Effective Dates & Application of Published Assessment Policy

How do you know what a policy said on a certain date and when it changed?

WorkSafeBC’s Policy, Regulation and Research Department created and maintains the Table of Effective Dates and Application of Published Assessment Policy.

The table provides information about changes to published policies in the Assessment Manual, which has been in effect since January 1, 2003. It sets out historical and current information about each published policy, including:

  • policy reference number and title;
  • Board of Directors’ resolutions that approved changes to the policy;
  • the effective date for each policy change;
  • the application statement of the policy or policy change.

The table provides links to the applicable resolution of WorkSafeBC’s governing body amending a policy, as well as the Update Package of manual pages that changed as a result of the decision. Where applicable, the resolution attaches a copy of the published policy that was added, deleted or amended by the resolution. Within the resolutions, additions are shown in bold and deletions as strikethrough.

Please note the table is not published policy of the Board of Directors. It is a reference tool and guide only. Although effort has been made to ensure that the table is accurate and up-to-date, if the table and a resolution of the governing body of WorkSafeBC conflict, the resolution will govern.

This table will be regularly updated to reflect resolutions of the Board of Directors. To ensure you have the most up-to-date information regarding the published policy of interest, read the resolutions of the Board of Directors made after the last update of the table.
