Exposure Control Plans
Provincial WorkSafeBC Regulation requires employers to create & implement a number of Exposure Control Plans.
Exposure control plans protect workers from hazardous substances.
Exposure control plans protect workers from a number of substances that may be hazardous to their health, including cancer-causing agents, reproductive hazards, and sensitizers. Each plan must be specific to the identified hazard. The plan outlines responsibilities of each level of the organization, risk identification, control measures, requirements for education and training and written procedures.
Substances requiring exposure control plans can be found across all industries and it is the employer’s responsibility to prove that their workforce is being protected.
