Hazard Case Studies

As part of BC Safety Authority’s commitment to share safety information with clients and the public, we publish hazard case studies of high risk installations and practices.

As-Found Hazard Data

During each physical assessment of regulated work, safety officers identify the hazards they observed and rate them in accordance with a predetermined scale ranging from
"insignificant" to "severe". As-found hazards are important as they provide an indication of how well duty holders independently understand and fulfil their safety obligations under the safety system.

Hazards for the last several years are provided below. Note: These hazards are published as directly entered by safety officers. The only changes made are to remove personal or professional identifiers as required for privacy protection.
