Part 25 Camps


The Regional Health Boards and Community Health Services Societies administer the Industrial Camps Health Regulation, which addresses matters such as water supply, sanitation and sleeping quarters.

The Occupational Health and Safety Regulation applies to camps to the extent they are workplaces in which workers such as cooks, maintenance people and others work.

If Board officers, in the course of their duties, find conditions in camps which may be of concern under the Industrial Camps Health Regulation, the matter will be referred to the attention of the appropriate officials.

Questions about the administration of the Industrial Camps Health Regulation should be directed to the officials responsible for its administration.
