Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I don't have a Safety Program?

According to WorkSafeBC, if a company does not implement a safety program, they may face consequences such as penalties and fines for non-compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation. In addition, the company may also face increased risks of workplace incidents and accidents, which can result in injury or harm to workers and negative impacts on the business. By failing to implement a safety program, a company is also failing to fulfill its duty to provide a safe and healthy work environment for its workers.

If you don't implement a safety program according to OSHA, your company could face penalties and fines for failing to comply with the regulations and standards set by OSHA. Additionally, the lack of a safety program can lead to increased risks of workplace accidents and injuries, which can result in increased costs, lower productivity, and potential legal liabilities. OSHA requires employers to provide a safe and healthy work environment for their employees and failure to comply with this requirement could result in penalties, fines, and legal action.

According to Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), failing to implement a safety program can result in significant consequences, including penalties, fines, and even criminal charges. Alberta OHS has a legal obligation to ensure that all employers are providing a safe and healthy work environment for their employees. If an employer is found to have failed to implement an adequate safety program, they can be issued with fines or penalties, and, in serious cases, may even face criminal charges. This can have serious impacts on the employer's reputation and financial stability, as well as causing harm to workers. In order to avoid these consequences, employers must ensure that they have a robust and effective safety program in place that meets the requirements of Alberta OHS.

When do I need a Safety Program?

According to WorkSafeBC, an employer in British Columbia, Canada is required to have a safety program if they employ 20 or more workers. A safety program is a systematic approach to managing workplace health and safety, and it helps employers meet their legal obligations under the Workers Compensation Act and its regulations. The safety program must outline the policies and procedures that the employer has in place to manage and prevent workplace hazards and injuries.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a safety program is needed in order to help prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. OSHA requires that employers take steps to eliminate or reduce workplace hazards to ensure a safe and healthy work environment.

The specifics of when a safety program is required by OSHA may vary depending on the size of the organization, the industry, and the types of hazards present in the workplace. Employers with 10 or fewer employees may be exempt from some recordkeeping requirements, but still have a responsibility to provide a safe workplace for their employees. Employers with 11 or more employees are generally required to establish a safety program and maintain accurate records of workplace injuries and illnesses.

According to Alberta Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), employers are required to have a safety program in place if they have 20 or more workers or if they operate in a high-risk sector, such as construction. The purpose of the safety program is to identify and control workplace hazards, prevent injury and illness, and promote a safe and healthy work environment for all employees. The safety program should be tailored to the specific needs and risks of the workplace and include the following elements: hazard assessment, hazard control, emergency preparedness, training, and regular review and updating.

Why do I need a Safety Program?

A safety program is necessary in a workplace to prevent accidents and illnesses, ensure compliance with health and safety regulations, and foster a culture of safety among employees. It helps to identify and manage potential hazards, establish procedures for reporting incidents, and provide training and resources for preventing incidents from occurring.

A comprehensive safety program can reduce the number of workplace accidents and illnesses, minimize financial losses due to work-related incidents, and improve overall employee morale and productivity.

What are the requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE) in my industry?

March 02, 20233 min read

The requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE) can vary depending on the industry and the specific hazards present in a workplace.

In general, employers are responsible for identifying the hazards in the workplace and providing appropriate PPE to protect workers from those hazards. It's important to note that PPE should always be used as a last resort, after other measures to eliminate or control hazards have been implemented. In addition, workers must be properly trained on the use, maintenance, and storage of PPE, and PPE must be properly maintained and regularly inspected to ensure that it is in good condition and able to provide the necessary protection.

Some Common Types of PPE Include:

  1. Eye and Face Protection,

  2. Hearing Protection

  3. Respiratory Protection

  4. Hand protection

  5. Foot protection

  6. Head Protection

WorkSafeBC has specific requirements for PPE in various industries, and the specific requirements can be found in their regulations and guidelines. To find information on WorkSafeBC about PPE for your industry, you can start by visiting the WorkSafeBC website and look for PPE requirements and guidelines for your specific industry. You can also look for industry-specific guidelines and resources provided by WorkSafeBC, such as bulletins, guidelines, and regulations. Additionally, you can contact WorkSafeBC directly to inquire about PPE requirements for your industry or seek guidance on PPE compliance.


Here's some general guidance for setting up the policies, practices, and training that will help you get compliant on PPE:

  1. Conduct a hazard assessment to identify potential hazards and determine the appropriate PPE required.

  2. Provide the necessary PPE to all employees and ensure that they know how to use it properly.

  3. Train employees on the proper use, maintenance, and disposal of PPE.

  4. Regularly inspect PPE to ensure it is in good condition and replace any damaged or worn equipment.

  5. Make sure that PPE is comfortable and fits properly to encourage consistent use.

  6. Encourage employees to report any issues or concerns with PPE.

  7. Establish procedures for cleaning and disinfecting PPE to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

  8. Ensure that PPE is properly stored and easily accessible for employees.

  9. Provide appropriate signage to indicate the required PPE in specific areas.

  10. Continuously review and update the PPE program as necessary to ensure that it remains effective and relevant to the hazards present in the workplace.


Training is an essential part of all safety compliance. The best way to train employees on PPE is through a combination of formal training sessions and ongoing reinforcement. Here are some tips:

  1. Provide formal training: Provide training sessions to educate employees on the importance of PPE, when to use it, how to wear it properly, and how to maintain it.

  2. Demonstrate proper use: Demonstrate how to put on, take off, and adjust PPE correctly, and have employees practice the procedures until they are comfortable with them.

  3. Provide visual aids: Use posters, videos, or other visual aids to reinforce the importance of PPE and demonstrate proper use.

  4. Emphasize the risks: Explain the specific risks associated with the job and how PPE can protect employees from those risks.

  5. Encourage questions: Encourage employees to ask questions and seek clarification if they are unsure about any aspect of PPE.

  6. Reinforce the message: Provide ongoing reminders and reinforcement of the importance of PPE, such as through regular safety meetings, posters, and other communications.

  7. Lead by example: Ensure that managers and supervisors also wear appropriate PPE and set a positive example for employees to follow.
