I wonder what these Decals will look like. I think this should help us not to have to compete against the hack home reno contractors that will just relocate switch's and and install electrical without informing there customers that they are not allowed to do electrical work.


Gas and electrical contractors are being encouraged to
include a free Heads Up For Safety brochure with every home
renovation quote they provide.
The BC Safety Authority’s Heads Up For Safety public
awareness campaign hammers home the message that
homeowners should hire licensed contractors and have the
necessary permits for home renovations involving regulated
gas and electrical work.
The Heads Up For Safety brochures are available free from the
BC Safety Authority. Contractors can add value to their work
when they include the brochure with their renovation quotations.
Individuals can also look forward to the new BC Safety Authority
vehicle sticker. The decal can be displayed on a vehicle to
promote one’s status as a contractor who is licensed by the
Safety Authority and qualifi ed to do regulated work.
Both the brochure and the decal provide licensed contractors
with a distinct edge over those who remain unlicensed or do
work without a proper permit.

With the inspectors having large areas to cover resulting in limited resources, this is the next step for the Safety Authority to deal with the problem. They are going in the right direction and it may help educate some people, but the ones who use price as their sole decision will continue using the hacks.
