Everyone wins when everyone feels safe
Safety is key to business success. Time and time again it has been demonstrated that a safe worker is a productive worker and a safe company is a profitable company.
The cost of unsafe workplaces is also not just in dollars. Experienced workers are lost, sometimes forever, and the morale of the workforce is affected. New workers become more difficult to attract to the sector. Safety is an important element of the long-term success of our sector.
To create a focus on safety in the BC forest sector, the BC Forest Safety Council was created in 2004 with the mission to eliminate all fatalities and serious injuries in the forest sector of British Columbia.
Visit the BC Forest Safety Council website for more information about safety programs, training, certification, fact sheets and lots of other tools for safe forestry operations.
