SCRD Arenas – Recent Safety Assessments

In December 2017, our ice plants at Gibsons and Area Community Centre and Sunshine Coast Arena were visited by representatives from Technical Safety BC and WorkSafeBC.   These site visits occur periodically, and are currently being conducted province-wide largely in response to the recent tragedy in Fernie, BC.

Key Information:

  • SCRD arenas are approved to continue operating. SCRD arenas are “Risk Assessed” by Technical Safety BC, meaning that they have additional safety measures in place and fall into a lower risk category as compared to plants that are not “Risk Assessed”.
  • Ensuring workplace health and safety and safe operation of facilities are priorities for the SCRD. Regular inspections and assessments of our facilities contribute to supporting these priorities. A number of areas for improvement were identified and staff are working to address items in need of further attention. 
  • Staff are communicating with Technical Safety BC and WorkSafeBC to ensure ongoing regulatory compliance.  The SCRD’s Joint Health and Safety committee for arenas and facilities and the Human Resources department are also involved in this process. 
  • All SCRD facility operators are properly certified to work in ice plants and to operate them safely.

A further update on the final assessment results is expected to be provided in February. If you have any questions please contact Ken Robinson, Manager of Facility Services and Parks,  604-885-6801.
