Talk to a Workers’ Compensation Expert

Service Description

In partnership with WorkSafeBC, Small Business BC is proud to offer FREE one-on-one advisory sessions with a representative of the Employers’ Advisers Office to help businesses reopen their doors in a safe and successful manner.

As British Columbia proceeds carefully with our provincial Restart Plan, more and more businesses are creating their reopening plans. Throughout this process, the health and safety of staff and customers must remain the top priority.

The Employers’ Advisers Office advises on these subjects and more, helping employers expand their knowledge of current legislation, regulations, policies and best practices in workplace safety. They are standing by to assist with questions on reopening in relation to the WorkSafeBC guidelines.

Due to the rapidly evolving public health situation surrounding COVID-19, Small Business BC has reached the difficult decision to modify how we deliver our services in the coming weeks.

As an organization, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. We also want to ensure we maintain the high service standards our clients expect. As such, we will be delivering all our services online, or over the phone, until further notice. See here for more information on our service changes. Please use our COVID-19 small business resources – including this practical checklist for business continuity.
