The existing footwear regulation (Sec. 8.22 of the OHS Regulation) was amended to ensure that workplace footwear is of a design, construction and material that allows the worker to safely perform their work and bar employers form requiring footwear contrary to this standard. WorkSafeBC will develop a guideline for employers and workers to support the amended regulation. The guideline is expected to be available by the end of April.
