On Tuesday October 17, 2017 CMHDS Members met with staff from WorkSafeBC who answered questions about the implementation of the Racking Regulations coming into effect on January 1, 2018.
WorkSafeBC did a short presentation covering the new regulations and the supporting documents and then the remainder of the meeting was spent on Questions & Answers. Most importantly there was a WorkSafeBC Enforcement Officer in attendance who was answering questions about how they will be enforcing the new regulations and how employers can comply.
Attendees were given the option to submit questions through the CMHDS and the society asked those questions on the member’s behalf. This was helpful for those members who had questions but preferred that their company not be identified as asking the question.
