Policy & Regulation Workplans

The Policy, Regulation and Research Department (PRRD) consults with internal and external stakeholders to develop effective policies and regulations regarding occupational health and safety, compensation for injured/disabled workers and their dependants, and employer assessments.

The PRRD also conducts annual consultation to establish workplans that set out policy and regulation related priorities for prevention, occupational health and safety, compensation and rehabilitation, and assessment matters. This feedback is reviewed by the PRRD and presented to WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors to determine the PRRD’s policy priorities for the year.

The PRRD currently maintains four workplans:

  • Compensation and Occupational Disease Policy
  • Assessment Policy
  • OHS Policy
  • OHS Regulatory Workplan

The PRRD anticipates that issues will arise during the year that will require immediate attention. It is intended that policy and regulation work will focus on the approved workplans but will require adjustment to address immediate concerns from external and internal stakeholder reviews and the Board of Directors' decisions.
