BOD Decision -2013/01/23-02 – OHS Penalty and Claims Cost Levy Stay Requests – D12-196-7
At its January 2013 meeting, WorkSafeBC’s Board of Directors approved amendments to the policy regarding Occupational Health and Safety (“OHS”) Penalty Stay Requests, D12-196-7. The Board of Directors’ resolution is available for reference.
The amendments allow WorkSafeBC to take limited legal action where necessary while a penalty stay request is outstanding, clarify when a penalty stay request begins and ends, and treat claims cost levy stay requests in the same way as OHS penalty stay requests.
A discussion paper relating to the proposed amendments was taken to public consultation from June 1 to October 12, 2012.
These amendments became effective on March 1, 2013.
