Proposed 2019-2022 Regulatory Amendments Workplan

The intent of this amendment is to amend Sections 5.27 and 5.28 of the OHSR which currently requires the elimination or control of possible ignition sources when transferring or handling flammable liquids and excludes combustible liquids such as diesel fuel and propane despite these substances creating a similar risk of fire or explosion hazards. The amendment will also review the Part 5 definition of flammable and combustible liquids for consistency with the WHMIS 2015 and the BC Fire Code.

The BCFED supports these amendments that will provide greater protection for workers.
