BC Safety Authority “Building Connections” with 2015 business plan
By Anthony Capkun
January 14, 2015 – BC Safety Authority (BCSA) has released its 2015-2017 Business Plan with the theme of “Building Connections”, outlining the organization’s plans for the three-year period in four key strategic areas: safety, clients, people and sustainability.
“The 2015-2017 business plan is our roadmap towards achieving our vision of Safe Technical Systems. Everywhere,” said Catherine Roome, BCSA president & CEO. “By strengthening the connections between BCSA, our clients and our stakeholders, we are getting the right information where it’s needed most. The result is an increasingly self-sustainable technical safety system.”
BCSA’s strategic deliverables for 2015 are:
• Help clients make better safety decisions, bring more clients into the safety system and systematically capture and share safety information from high-hazard, ‘as found’ assessments and incident investigations.
• Better support large asset owners to manage the safety of their equipment, from installation to operation (including liquefied natural gas).
• Expand the client online experience to better connect clients to safety; quicker transactions, more service delivery options, safety knowledge and access to personalized safety information.
• Properly manage its balance sheet and implement systems that improve BCSA’s internal operations.
BCSA is mandated to oversee the safe installation and operation of technical systems and equipment. In addition to issuing permits, licences and certificates, BCSA says it works with industry to reduce safety risks through assessment, education and outreach, enforcement, and research.
