The WorkSafeBC Board approved amendments to the working alone requirements for late night retail premises in Part 4 of the OHS Regulation, effective April 15, 2012. Employers now have a third compliance option in addition to hiring additional workers or erecting a barrier. This option provides a list of engineering and administrative controls, all of which employers who choose this option must implement. In addition, employers must have regular security audits done by a qualified and independent person to confirm that all the controls have been implemented.
