Jan. 13: A new report recommends amending the Workers’ Compensation Act and regulations to require all construction workers and worker safety representatives to get WorkSafeBC-certified safety training. Other recommendations:
- Allow authorized union safety reps the right to enter non-union worksites
- Grant all construction workers, regardless of employer size, the right to participation and representation on OHS management issues
- Set up pilot projects to see how safety innovations in other jurisdictions could be replicated on BC construction sites.
