Site Safety Assessment (SSA)

Safe practices start before the work begins.

Section 3 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act of B.C. states:

  • (3.5) “Every employer must ensure that regular inspections are made of all workplaces …at intervals that will prevent the development of unsafe working conditions.”
  • (3.9) ”Unsafe or harmful conditions found in the course of an inspection must be remedied without delay.”

The Site Safety Assessment kit is comprised of three (3) working parts:

  1. Online learning course
  2. Digital guidebook
  3. Site Safety Assessment Form (Fillable PDF)
The SSA program:

  • Promotes a culture of safety in your company – by bringing a disciplined approach to “regular workplace inspections” in order to detect any unsafe condition
  • Assists your company in meeting its mandate to “remedy without delay” any unsafe condition
  • Keeps all workers and site visitors informed of site-specific hazards and mitigating steps (not all hazards can be eliminated) 
  • Is available without cost
