BCMSA developed these Supplemental Safety Programs (SSP’s) and we do our best to keep them up to date as regulations change, but it remains the employers’ responsibility to ensure compliance with current WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulation (OHSR).

Here’s an OH&S Program “shell”. Once customized for your organization, it should detail all elements of your Safety Program. It includes helpful templates for Incident/Accident Investigations, Inspections, etc.

Stay at Work/Return to Work Program (updated February 2020)
Statistically, we know that the sooner an employee returns to work after an injury or illness, the faster his/her full recovery will be. We have created a Stay at Work/Return to Work Program template to help you with this process.
You will need to customize this program to meet the needs of your organization. In addition to helping you establish an effective program for re-integrating workers into the workplace after an injury or illness, by following this template, your organization should be able to successfully complete the Return-To-Work Certificate of Recognition Program (when you complete the Health & Safety COR Audit as well).
