Terms of Reference


The Board of Directors of Energy Safety Canada is responsible for the stewardship of the organization and for overseeing the affairs of ESC and the activities of management set out in this Terms of Reference. Management is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the organization.

The board will focus on strategic leadership that will emphasize:

  • The future of safety in the oil and gas industry
  • A clear distinction of the roles of the Board and staff
  • Pro-activity rather than reactivity

In carrying out its strategic leadership responsibilities Board members will need to strike a balance between their responsibilities to present the views of their particular trade associations and their responsibilities to promote the overall welfare of Energy Safety Canada and the industry. Done effectively this will enable the Board to direct, control and inspire the organization through careful deliberation and establishment of policy. That policy will then be carried out by management and staff.
