Health & Safety
WorkSafeBC provides the minimum health and safety requirements in BC. The Health, Safety and Reclamation Code for Mines in British Columbia provides additional health, safety, and mining information.
All work-related accidents are claimed through WorkSafeBC as mining and mining related companies operating in British Columbia are required to have WCB coverage, as per BC law.
Hardcopies of the Handbook are available from any Ministry office and often at Government Agencies, mining supply stores, etc.
