Do you have a restaurant on your property? If so, the SIPI will be relevant to your property.
In 2020, WorkSafeBC is including employers in the restaurant service industry (CU 761035, “Restaurant or other Dining Establishments”) as part of our 2018–2020 Serious Injury Prevention Initiative (SIPI).
About the Initiative
WorkSafeBC examined claims and assessment data and applied a predictive model to identify industries, workplaces, and work activities with the highest potential for serious injury, outside of the traditional high risk strategy areas.
SIPI is a three-year plan to prevent serious injuries in the Transportation and Warehousing, Trade, Public, and Service sectors. SIPI is focused on inspecting and engaging employers to prevent serious injuries, which is defined by either the severity or potential severity of the injury — such as a fracture of a major bone — or the length of the recovery period.
