WorkSafeBC Check-in Service
A safety solution for employers that have workers who operate remotely and/or alone. BC’s Occupational Health & Safety Regulation (OHSR) requires that employers with staff that work alone or in remote situations have formal procedures in place to minimize hazards faced by those workers AND a way to check on their well-being while on the job.
Section 4.21 of the OHSR outlines the requirements for checking on the well-being of workers assigned to work in circumstances where assistance would not be readily available to them in case of an emergency, or in case they are injured or become ill.
Checking on a worker’s well-being must include time intervals between checks and a procedure to follow if the worker cannot be contacted, including provisions for emergency rescue. A person must also be designated to establish contact with the worker at predetermined intervals and those results must be recorded. Check methods include visual or two-way voice contact, but where such a system is not practicable, a one-way system which allows the worker to call or signal for help (and which will send a request for help) is acceptable.
With our skilled operators and our 24/7 availability, Curtis-Elite will provide you with the communication procedures needed to support your lone workers and meet your legal requirements.
