The Act requires WorkSafeBC and the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal to apply these policies when making decisions. The Prevention Manual is published in Adobe Acrobat portable document format (PDF). The PDF files reflect the current printed manual, and include the most recent update.  You can access the entire manual as a single PDF. This PDF file can be printed and downloaded.
