In July, WorkSafeBC launched a new publication, ‘Safe Work Practices in Residential Construction’, which is intended to assist those in the residential construction industry to promote safer workplaces. It also marked the beginning of a provincial initiative to create partnerships with associations and other jurisdictions to raise awareness about the requirement to submit a ‘Notice of Project’ (NOP) when required, before it starts. Attend to gain a better understanding of your responsibilities related to NOPs, learn about the residential construction resources that are available, and take this opportunity to ask questions.
Also included in this session is an overview of the 2021-2023 Construction High Risk Strategy (CHRS) which is being designed to reduce the construction industry’s serious injury rate through risk-reduction strategies focused on health and safety responsibilities specific to hazard identification and controlling risk in relation to high-risk work activities. Learn about the strategy’s key elements and then participate in the Q&A session to provide feedback from your industry’s perspective.
