Q&A - Equipment Required for 14 Passenger Van
I'm working on a construction site in Delta and we recently acquired a 14 Passenger Van/Bus to transport workers or employees from the site office to the job site. As per Worksafe BC, other than a Class 4 Licensed driver, the only thing we require is a Level 1 First Aid Kit (due to our proximity to hospital). I'm trying to find out what's required to be on board; in regards to safety equipment (ie. Fire Extinguisher, etc.) Motor Vehicle Act or MOT. However, I seem to be finding conflicting information online.
The van is purely for transporting workers back and forth. There is zero compensation made off it, so I don't believe it falls under the Passenger Transportation Act. In one spot the PTA refers to this type of vehicle as a 'general passenger vehicle', but I am unable to locate any requirements for that type of vehicle.
If you can help me, that would be great, if not, if you can suggest who I can contact that would also be helpful.
