Learn about WorkSafeBC Law & Policy

Policy and regulation development are the responsibility of WorkSafeBC's Board of Directors (“BOD”) under the Workers Compensation Act.

The Policy, Regulation and Research Division ("PRRD") advises the BOD on policy and regulation development issues. In preparing policy and regulatory proposals for the BOD’s consideration, the PRRD consults with a variety of stakeholders, including employer and labour representatives, scientific and legal experts, and the various divisions of WorkSafeBC.

The policies of the BOD are to be applied by all decision-makers in the workers’ compensation system.
