BC Safety Authority is increasing the security on how qualified individuals are named on permits. This is in response to feedback and suggestions from contractors and qualified individuals who are concerned about security and preventing fraud.
The permit application will require the following in order to find and select a qualified individual:
- The last six digits of the Field Safety Representative’s (FSR) Certification number. If the number is less than six digits, add preceding zeroes. (For example: 001234).
- The last name of the Field Safety Representative.
Implementation dates of this security feature are as follows:
- September 20, 2014 for online permit applications through MyConnection
- November 03, 2014 for in-person permit applications over the counter at BCSA offices and/or by phone through BCSA’s contact centre at 1-866-566-7233
If you have questions, please call our contact centre or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
