To ensure safe practices are followed we educate, guide and warn; but when that’s ignored, we enforce.

Our enforcement processes and enforcement actions promote compliance with the Safety Standards Act.  Failure to comply with the requirements of the Act or regulations may result in BCSA taking enforcement actions such as providing a warning notice, issuing a compliance order or imposing a monetary penalty or discipline order.  In the case of a discipline order, a contractor licence or individual certificate of qualification could be either suspended or revoked.

In the railway technology, BCSA safety officers and the safety manager work under the Railway Safety Act in conjunction with the Provincial Government to promote compliance with regulatory requirements.
